Kuhl's flying gecko, Ptychozoon kuhli. This awesome gecko decided to meet me by dropping/gliding down from nowhere and landed on a tree trunk right in front of me, below knee level. I was checking out the tree for bugs at that time! Unfortunately, I forgot to bring my tripod so only high ISO shot here.
