This is not a photo manipulation. I happen to see these dyed sunflowers and bought some with the idea in mind of making a shot like this. This is a baby vield chameleon. You can tell its size by the fiber on the stem of the sunflower turned sideways for the shot. I used a light pointing directly at it and also a Nikon sb-700 flash with a vello chord to light it different ways to see if I could find an effect I like.

I can make prints available to those interested. Just send a note. Thanks! And thanks for looking.
