A colourful chameleon uses his lightning fast reflexes to snap up a mantis with his tongue while perching on the edge of a grapevine branch.<br />
Sizing up his prey, the careful chameleon practices taking his aim before making the killer shot.<br />
After a minute the chameleon makes his move, firing its tongue out a full ten inches to snap up the mantis.<br />
In a flash, his tongue is already back in its mouth enjoying the satisfying meal he waited so patiently to enjoy.<br />
