Dutch photographer, Marsel van Oosten, winner of the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year award, captured this image in Namibia, Africa. About the shot he says, "The Namib desert in Namibia has some of the highest sand dunes in the world. One morning I spotted this Namaqua chameleon (Chamaeleo namaquensis) and watched it for a while. When it walked towards a bush and stopped, I saw the bug. I lay flat on the sand with a 90mm macro lense, chose a fast shutterspeed and composed the shot."
Gotcha! was displayed at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, Washington, USA.
We are honoured to have Marsel's permission to transpose his photograph into an image carved in wood.
