Description: The "Day of the Chameleons": had just photographed 3 chameleons in a single restio clump. One catching a bug, one shedding it's skin, one just being a chameleon. Then saw this buzzard nearby. Did not see the kill, just the shredding and eating part. No doubt that the kill was a chameleon. Urban "Slow Food"? Happen on top of a street light in the car park outside the Gardens.Sorry for the many photos, but tried to show the process.
