The crimson face and pose suggest this male is "putting the moves on" the larger drabber female.

Saw it moving on a low branch of a palm tree.
This guy was really showing off when I found him. Magnificent red crest on this one. He was about four meters up a trees trunk sunning himself.
One of two I spotted in the area today. Yellower and smaller. I believe this one is the female.
I believe this is a young changeable lizard.
Sorry for the bad pic. Its a screen grab. I knew I wouldn't be able to get close enough with my iPhone to get a proper pic so I used video and pushed in as close as i could before it ran off. The original video is posed here and gives a better impression of the lizard.
• Really cool.
• Long toes and long back legs.
• A cool spiny crest runs down its spine from the mid-section towards the back of its head then gradually getting smaller as it runs the length of its body to the back legs.
• A dulap with a reddish zig-zag pattern extended under its throat.
• Found many of this species on tree trunks on this hot and sunny day in the Choeung Ek Killing Fields about 9 miles from Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

A female observed on a cement litter bin near the beach. She was kind enough to pose before scuttling off into the under brush.
