It isn’t quite the right title for a new Jimmy Buffet song, but the title “Chameleon in Paradise” will do for this post. I was taking photos of pretty Plumeria flowers (below) yesterday in Kepaniwai Park on Maui and found this little guy sauntering across the landscape. He wasn’t moving very fast, so I was able to lay down on my belly in the dirt to get some eye level photographs. This also helped me move the background farther away from the chameleon for a nice soft backdrop. I used my Nikon 70-200 f2.8 to also enhance the narrow depth of field.
