The Asian elephants have been held in high regard for centuries across Asia, with an important role in the continent's culture and religion. They also play a critical role in maintaining the region's forests. But their habitat is shrinking and Asian elephants are now ENDANGERED.
Cheow Lan Lake - This magnificent man-made lake covers approximately 185 square kilometres. Emerging from the cool water are limestone karsts, traces of a coral reef system that once stretched from Borneo to China.
Cheow Lan lake in the Khao Sok Narional park, one of the most beautiful and fairy-tale like scenery that I've ever seen. It has over 100 islands with towering limestone cliffs. The lake is also known as Cheow Lan, and gibbons and hornbills are commonly seen in the old-growth jungle trees at the water's edge.

The collared kingfisher is 22 to 29 cm long. It varies from blue to green above while the underparts can be white or buff. There is a white collar around the neck, giving the birds its name. Spent 2 hours trying to get a shot of this bird on Karon beach, Thailand.
This was my first sighting of a long tailed macaque in Thailand, while kayaking down the Sok river in the Khao Sok national park. Have you ever tried photographing in a kayak? I found it difficult to photograph wildlife while in a moving kayak. Definitely tested me and my patience.
I believe this is a grey-breasted spiderhunter (a species of bird in the family Nectariniidae). Please correct me if I'm wrong as there's other species seriously near identical to this guy. Aside from Thailand they are found in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore ect. “Their plumages are by no means flamboyant nor shimmer iridescently under sunrays like sunbirds.
The Garden Fence Lizard is very common in Thailand and they are quite at home in garden. I often saw them by the pool, in a tree or even near the beach. Like many small reptiles and insects in Thailand, they are sometimes regarded as a tasty snack. After seeing lots of these guys around the hotel I asked one of the barman at a beach bar what is this species called..all he said was lizard. Then carried on to say it's a good snack and good protein.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone
