If I can not hide myself then I hope my colour scares you

Destination Travel Guide Nan, Thailand
Chameleon on a tree in Pua, Thailand

While walking at Wang Sila Leang in Pua I (actually my wife) saw this chameleon sitting on a tree. Why such a strong colour? I was told that if they notice that they can not hide by adapting to the background colour then they will show a colour that hopefully scares you. What a beautiful creature of nature! I have a small serie of photos of animals in Thailand, have a look at Animals.
