There are around 171 different species of chameleon, their habitat ranges from Madagascar, which seems to have the lion's share including the largest and smallest species, but they are also found in Africa, Spain, Portugal and Asia in rain forests, savannas, semi-deserts and steppes.
They typically stay in trees or bushes, though some species do live on the ground. For example, the horned leaf chameleon lives in dead leaves on forest floors.
Their eyes are particularly interesting...little independently revolving volcanoes...along with their cute "Spocky" little claws and fimbriated jaws and spines...
I simply printed out the photo and adhered it to the mounting piece...no fancy treatment this week!
The local tennis club is located right on the side of the rivulet and as we crossed the metal footbridge at the Eastern end of the walk a couple of young lads were eagerly retrieving lost tennis balls which we quite often see floating down the creek. With all the enthusiastic exuberance of their tribe they bid us hello and calling out excitedly that they had "found two!"...simple pleasures...
