Color Me Sad

Photograph by Nicolas Le Boulanger, National Geographic Your Shot

When Your Shot member Nicolas Le Boulanger sees his friend’s pet chameleon, housed in a terrarium, he can’t help thinking that it's in the wrong place, even if it’s loved. “I wanted to [relate] the confusion that this animal seems to feel as it is separated from its natural environment,” he writes. “His look seems to call for help.”

Le Boulanger’s picture recently appeared in the Your Shot assignment Not Your Average Pet.
