The Common Butterfly Lizard or just Butterfly Lizard is native to Asia and it can be found in the forest of Indochina, Myanmar, Thailand, and Malaysia.
When I found this Lizard it was on a very dry hard soil in which hard broken rocks into very small pieces, like bread crumbs on the ground, scattered. I had to kneel and on fours to get some of the shots, it was difficult. The Lizard gave some time to take photographs but then it ran away to small mounds covered with plants and, twigs, and rocks.
I am fascinated of the the Butterfly Lizard because of its colours on its side and it looks like an intimidating creature when you look at it large through the lens, it becomes a giant reptile.
