A male Panther Chameleon in Madagscar. Panther chameleons come in varies colors, depending on locale. This bright red male is from the Antsiranana and Sambava locale.
Contrary to popular belief, chameleons do not change color based on their immediate environment. Their color is dictated by locale and their mood.

Cool or awesome, you decide
Most people think chameleons are pretty cool, but we think they deserve more credit than that. Take this Panther Chameleon for example, the Furcifer pardalis, captured in Madagascar.
It's beyond cool. It has turret-like eye lids, can rotate and focus its eyes independenty to observe two objects simultaneously in full 360 degree vision, which includes ultraviolet light and a range that allows it to see small insects at 15m (50 ft). It comes in various local color morphs that look wildly different, yet the panther patterns are consistent. It has a tongue longer than its body which it can launch at over 20 times its body length per second. It has feet optimized for balance on the smallest of twigs and claws to climb the steepest of trees. And...it can inflate itself to impress other males.
This is not a circus act on a tree. It's an... more »

Chameleons are hard to identify. You cannot really use their colors for identification, because they change based on their emotional state, location and sex. Instead, morphology is used, meaning the shape and size of various body attributes.
Our guess is that this one, captured at Pyreras Reserve, Madagascar, concerns a female Two-banded chameleon (Furcifer balteatus). Any reptile expert to confirm or correct?

Fire bird and Alien
Can these two shots be any more different?
Yet they are the exact same creature, the Red Admiral butterfly. Captured in the garden, no staging applied, it is alive and well.
Gear: Nikon D7000 + Nikkor AF-S 105mm F2.8 G IF-ED VR Micro. Handshot without flash.
Here's 100 more scary little alien-like Macros:

Red Admiral (Vanessa atalanta)
An unexpected visit today in the garden by a playful Red Admiral, a perfect excuse to bring out the macro canon. These Red Admirals come flying in from the South of Europe to the North to raise a new generation.
Why our garden? Apples!

The Secretary Bird
The Secretary Bird is remarkeable in many ways. Its appearence is a bit unusual as it seems like a hybird between an eagle and a crane bird. It's hunting skills are diverse and brutal, and range from ambushing prey, crushing their backs, dropping them from great heights and swallowing them whole and alive. Some scientists believe their aggresive yet creative behavior resembles that of terror birds: raptor-like half-birds from the dinosaur age:

We're spending a lot of time trying to identify this specie. Anybody know what it is? It has six legs so not a spider, probably captured in Turkey.

USA vs Europe
The strength, power and pride of the White-tailed eagle and the speed and grace of the European Common Buzzard.
They both get the job done. As does JungleDragon if you're a birder:

A Marmelade Hoverfly in mid-air
The making of
They fly in a relatively static position. Manually pre-focus to approximately get it in focus. Use flash. Next, rapid fire whilst moving your camera slightly forward and backward, like rocking a chair. Be quick, you only have 2-5 secs for the total process. Pray that one turns out sharp.
