A selection of images of a microcosm of Thailand
• A selection of images of a microcosm of Thailand
Selection of the Thai micro and not-so-micro-world, taken during a short trip to the south of Thailand, mainly in the area of Ao Nang and the national park of Khao Phanom Bench.
This lizard I have shown - Oriental Garden Lizard, family agamidae. Despite the terrible name - mileyshaya lizard got its name because of the bright, "bloody" color. Although the Internet is walking the bike about that bloodsucker - t. To lizard can suddenly kaak jump, grab the man stranglehold, and not let go until you get drunk human blood.. I'm not an expert in lizards, but- in my opinion, stupid. More precisely, any lizard clung, and not just a lizard - zverushku if cornered, scare and poke a finger. So Kaloth - nice, bright and adequate, he is afraid of everything as soon as possible, the main thing - do not try to stroke.
This picture I have called "a dreamer".
So, as I understand it, Bloodsucker male attracts bloodsuckers-the females.
First, I called the photo "lying in wait", but I explained that it is - daily lizard, and among the branches they in this way have a rest after a busy day.
common tree frog become like family to me. If somewhere nearby there is a small pond - the trees in the neighborhood will be guaranteed to have a rest a couple (or even ten) copepods.
"In anticipation of the summer" ... Somewhere in the distance - noisy, splashing and it creates beautiful bokeh 7-step waterfall Huay Tho.
The town of Ao Nang is located in Krabi province, but the province is named not after crabs, and crabs from the Thai (accent on the last syllable) - the sword. Although the crab is there, and is a local landmark - very often in the evening after low tide you can see the sand dozens, hundreds of holes, some of which are on duty tiny crab. .
This crab - relatively large, about 1 cm Crabs formally protected - for example, try to stick in the sand parasol - large fine: it can disturb the crabs.
That, however, does not interfere with the locals in the evening to walk with bags and catch very large crabs (presumably, solely for the purpose of protection).
Meet - fulgoridae, Pyrops candelaria. Unfortunately, I posed not long ... But there is a reason to return to Khao Bench.
A random shot, which I did, raising his head during a walk through the jungle. He called "hidden threat".
Thai "colleagues" are well known to us and nothing outwardly remarkable European harvestmen have a much brighter, even a little frightening, appearance.
For ants I can watch for hours. Just wonder how this ant in seconds picked up a falling feather, bonded fibers, and then single-handedly dragged the load is much larger, heavier, and thus still teetering on the edge of a leaf.
And finally - I was very fond of Heliconia. Not just a bright, unusual plant, but also a popular place for the feast of garden ants.
