The Art of Camouflage  
I got back last night after a busy jungle outing, saw tons of birds, reptiles and mammals. Had an elephant charge - a mock charge which was fairly close by a female elephant. Saw a giant tusker who was rather demure and even changed his path to avoid us. I sure was impressed by this one since every other time I've seen a tusker, it's charged.

Ok, here's the camouflage picture. It's just amazing how some animals have adapted to their environment! It's the Draco or flying lizard and found in the forests of India. I actually noticed it when it "flew" from one tree to the next.

Wow!!! Super camouflage and a really super pic. I was searching for 5 secs before I could make out the lizard.

I leaned on a tree to shoot a malabar giant squirrel and this thing just "flew" and Harsha spotted it for me again!

I just resized the image, the forest was very thick and dark in the background and hence the black.
