These normally don't come down from their canopy. In this particular patch of the forest, they had to come down as the road was bisecting their forest, hence one came down and ran for the next tree, the light was not favorable for photography, hence the blur :-)

They are so comfortable up in their tree canopy but must feel very vulnerable on the ground.  It must be awkward for them when roads suddenly appear across their normal routes, and I love the way you caught this one stretched out and making a run for the next tree!

Great stretched out pose and nice low angle, Clement.

Great timing. I really like the action you've captured. First time I've seen this animal.
