Below are two nearly identical shots of a male panther chameleon Furcifer pardalis on the northwestern island of Nosy Be.  The lizard was discovered in foliage along the road to the island's highest point, Mont Passot.  I had my double flash units mounted on bracket arms and fired the top pic at f8.  A half second later I took another shot in natural light only.  I've been trying to take more natural-light-only shots when possible as I prefer the real colors and having the background foliage also show up well.  I've come to realize that too many of my otherwise nice chameleon pics make the animals appear to be nocturnal when the backgrounds go dark from lack of artificial flash reaching them when shooting at the higher f-stops.
