A photographic guide to the Chameleon of South Africa.

Post by mariquensis » February 12th, 2018, 10:26 am

Finally after tens of thousands of kilometres trekking across Southern Africa, more than 5 years, hours of research, countless emails, terrible weather (one snowed in weekend), endless battery charges and 100's of failed photographs.

I've finally tracked down and photographed all of the formally described species of chameleons in Southern Africa. The entire story is now live and you can read it below!

I interrupted my viewing of your works to comment last night but got interrupted myself, but I must tell you as I journeyed through I think I was smiling the whole time.

Such a wonderful achievement and so full of facts, warmth and passion.

The photos of all the species - irreplaceable.

Thank you Kelly - appreciate the kind words. Now I'll twiddle my thumbs until they formally describe some more chameleons I guess!

Thanks for taking the time out to read it - I realise its a long read and offsite but it was just too long to upload here.

Cheers again!
