Bravo! Indeed, Willem.
As a boy in Uganda, there was a chameleon living on the vereandah outside my room - fascinating creature! I used to feed it little scraps of meat from my plate - rinsed first, I recall, on parents' advice.

Hello Icy North and Rod! I'm glad you enjoyed my picture. Rod, I'm happy you got to see a real chameleon as well! It might even have been the same kind as this one.

D and I got to see a fairly large green one at the University of Pittsburgh. It was a lovely animal and to actually see that tongue in action is truly astonishing. One of the grad students was keeping it as a pet and said it was good at getting rid of cockroaches as well.
I think their gun turret eyes are .

Did that chameleon look something like this Elektra?

Well, I don't remember the colours being so bright, Willem but with chameleons you really can't go by that. Besides it was in Pittsburgh which while the stopping of bituminous coal being used to heat houses improved air quality --many of the buildings still had dark residue on them. The tree he was perched on had brown bark so his colour wasn't astonding but that tongue action certainly was.
