  1. The raindrops add a mystic sparkle. Posted 8 years ago
    1. Yes, that was a lucky side effect. On this one the effect is much stronger:

      Blue-legged chameleon at night in Ranomafana I have a list of spotted chameleon names during this night walk in Ranomafana, but now I have to match the photos to the name, which is hard. This one comes closest to the Blue-legged chameleon, which is quite a mysterious creatures, hardly any information about it is available online. There are several photos, but as with most chameleons, they wildly vary in appearence based on gender, age and locality. <br />

By the way, I was quite happy with my flash light bouncing on the water drops in this shot. Almost as if there are a few dozen little flashes :) Blue-legged chameleon,Calumma crypticum,Geotagged,Madagascar,Ranomafana National Park

This chameleon is endemic to the island of Madagascar where it is known from a number of localities in the central highlands and southeast between Tsinjoarivo (F. Glaw pers. comm. January 2011) and Antoetra in the north (Andreone et al. 2007) and Andohahela to the south (Glaw and Vences 2007). It was recorded at Andringitra between 1,240 and 1,300 m elevation (Raxworthy and Nussbaum 1996). Other sites where it is known to occur include Kalambatritra (Andreone and Randrianirina 2007) and Ranomafana.. more
