How about "Clover"? I also thought of "Opal" since they change color in when you move them in the light. Also could go with "Peridot" or "Peri" for short" - August birthstone, lovely shade of green. "Emerald" or Emie for short would also work. (Seem to be on a gem stone theme here.

09/09/2006 03:30:54 PM
I like how the lighting brings out the detail on her body. I think this composition works well. As for a name: the first one that popped into my mind was Incognito, but I don't know if that would fit the style you are seeking.

Congrats! Very rich, peaceful pic.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/08/2006 08:46:13 AM
I did not vote on this one, but it definately would've gotten a 8 from me. I also have a pet like this - mine is not timid though. He is a massive male with an attitude. Love him, he hates cats (obvious reasons, but he is too big for cats to hurt him - they are afraid of him.
Quality of photo - brilliant. Perfection. Good subject - they tend to not too move too fast. LOL.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/08/2006 08:32:28 AM
What does she eat elsapo? What a crazy cool little pet. Some names ideas:

Valerie
Cammie
Jury (for Jurassic)
Dainty

I dunno. She is adorable. I want one now.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/08/2006 08:27:04 AM
Hmm, I like "GOOGLYEYES" as a name. :-)

Congrats on the great shot!

Timid would be a perfect name I think :)

Nice job man, loved it when I saw it :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/08/2006 01:15:21 AM
I think jewel would be a good name. She changes to fit her surroundings like the facets of a gem changes color.

Congrats on a FANTASTIC photo and the Yellow!

What a magnificent photo of your darling chameleon - she makes a wonderful muse. I've always found chameleons to be intriguing, I think her expression here gives that quality to the photo. Congrats on the ribbon! (And I think Amelia the Chameleon would be a great name for her....)

The colors are absolutely rich and vibrant where they need to be. Love how you have a range of beautiful rich greens in differnt shades and tones in this composition. The slight spotlight that illuminates the chameleon is wonderful! It serves to illuminate the background just behind it creating a warm, rich green 'glow' on your subject all the while perfectly lighting the lovely greens & details of this lizard. The square crop is a nice addition too because it keeps attention tightly focused on your main subject.

gorgeous picture. the greens are fantastic, and it's all just a splendid job really. the wee guy i really cute; i love that he has a beady eye on the camera, and his facial expression is so "well, what?". the colours and the way the focus works around him and the leaves are all stunning. and, right now, i really fancy a budweiser. 10.
