green and shedding

i went out to take photos of an orchid that only blooms in August when i spied this guy spying on me. he was making his way along the top of a fence back to the hedge. this must be a male Jackson , because of the 3 horns, that is wild and roams the hills and trees looking for juicy insects to eat. he is also shedding his last summer's skin. if you have ever seen one move it is quite a sight. they sorta sea sew back and forth to the next foot hold and what a grasp they have as all four feet have a sort of claw or opposable digit that won't let go this the next grasp is complete. more studies in green here . what a wonderful jungle we live in!
