This was the first flying lizard I've come across at night, which is pretty lame considering how many different species there are in Malaysia, and how many nights I have spent looking for herps there. During the day, it would probably have skittered high up the tree before I could get a decent photo. But at night it held its position and I got couple of in situ photos, before gently plucking it off the tree so I could figure out which species it was. When I put it back, it gave me the side eye, but otherwise posed nicely.
