Description: unexpected encounter with a fiery chameleon, it was walking down the middle of a sandy farm track, the defiance with the camera lasted for 19 seconds after which it turned back down the track. As lunchtime was approaching the arrival of the neighbouring foreman was imminent and as he thinks this road is an extension of Kyalami the chameleon, who was slowly heading off down the centre of the track again, needed to be relocated. The response to being picked up was rapid and extreme.

Description: As big as it was unexpected. 11:09 on a sunny mid-winter's morning I was walking as quietly as possible hoping for a shot of a basking Terrestrial Brownbul (never on the ground, incidentally - always in thick bush!) when this 'log' as thick as my arm moved slowly across the trail about 20m ahead. Tried to creep closer for a head shot, but at about 10m the snake must have detected me and shot off between the rocks into the bush.
