i don't think i ever showed you this chameleon we had over for a visit on yom kippur. they pop by in the garden once in a while, but this was quite magnificent. they used to be very common in the middle east, but today there are less as they - unfortunately for them - move very slow. this of course make them easy to catch and so, children and others catch them for fun, keeping them as pets.
they really are slow, which is why we had the opportunity to take this guy from the pomegranate tree where he was hanging for a close up examination.he was quite stunning.
and so, after a few minutes we said our good buys and out ways parted.
ps: thanks a lot for all the nice words the other day. i am considering to get a mustache for real now
