Looking for reference of Jackson's Chameleons different colors

Hello! I'm looking for references of the different colors/patterns Jackson's chameleons can turn, and for what reasons they'd change colors. I've been searching around these and other forums, and haven't come up with all that much concrete info. Using this for personal character design reasons, btw! If anyone has photos of the different color/pattern states, that would be incredibly helpful. Thanks!

Dark all over - cold or stressed
Dark on one side toward the light, green on the other - basking, dark to maximize absorption.
Triangle pattern of different greens - feeling exposed, commonly seen on babies
Green with blueish areas - content, warm enough or on display or on the hunt.
Light washed out green - too warm

This would be a fun blog post if you have pics to go with each option. 😁

Noted, thanks so much, that's super helpful! You mentioned you had pics of the wrong subspecies, tbh if it's not much trouble I'd still love to see those, if that's alright!
