Not exactly flying lizard, but rather a gliding lizard, Draco volans Uses the yellow "flag" to attract females and the "wings" to glide. Nice and sharp! Normally see them at P.Ubin, there is another species with a black flag found in the Central Catchment reserves as well. I was observing a pair of them (the black flag kind) this afternoon as well down at Sime Forest.

Excellent shot Ender, I like the usage of the natural sunlight here to illuminate the subject. :thumbsup: My only nit is that it is too center. The lichen(?) and the rough bark makes for an interesting texture background.

Thanks also to mphil for the ID!
