Three Indian chameleons are seen moving about among the leaves at the tip of a branch, the uppermost projecting its tongue to catch a fly. The Indian chameleon (Chamaeleo zeylanicus) can be found in India, Sri Lanka and South Asia. Its body can reach up to 7 inches in length (18 cm) and its tail 8 in (20 cm).
The caption reads in the original German:
