Totally focused

Photo Information
A seöldom picture - a chameleon normally constantly moves his eyes in all directions to scan the surrounding - in this case, both eyes focus the prey to measure the distance and direction and the massive tongue is already "loaded" and ready to shoot out.
From this time on a photographer can only guess when to shoot the next photo - the catch itself is so fast that you can hardly see it - you see something flashing and at the same time, the insect is already in the mouth.
