Madagascar has some very unique wildlife, with about 90 percent of the plant and animal species being endemic to this beautiful island. As my workshop there was not particularly focused on photographing wildlife, most of the animal photographs I have are opportunistic shots taken whenever we encountered something interesting.
Such was the case with the image below of this beautiful Oustalet Chameleon (also known as Malagasy Giant Chameleon). Our guide had very quick reactions, spotting this guy trying to cross the road and stopping the bus so we can all take a look at it and then chase it away from the middle of the road where it could easily be killed by another vehicle. In a way, this picture says a lot about the way human population is encroaching on the wildlife habitat and how these animals really struggle to survive in an increasingly man-made environment.
