Got it licked: Incredible snaps capture moment chameleon captures dinner
When it comes to catching dinner this chameleon has it LICKED.
Perching on a bulrush reed the hungry reptile waits patiently for a dragonfly to land nearby.
And as one does it quickly extends its tongue – wrapping up its meal and swallowing it up.
Snapper Kutub Uddin, 28, uses high-speed camera techniques to capture the split-second action in amazing detail.
Dedicated Kutub, who lives in Bognor Regis, West Sussex, waited more than four hours for the intricate shot.
He said: “The chameleon is my pet – I left him on a plant near my house and waited for him to eat.
“When a dragonfly came I captured the moment using a 100mm macro lens.
“For this picture I spent four hours but finally I was able to shoot the right moment”.
