Damselfly takes possession, and claims ownership, of a water lily bud...in a small pond in a Singburi temple garden.
The pigeons seem to enjoy the warm water of the little pond in the grounds of the temple we visited in Singburi Province a couple of days ago.
There is a new, huge effigy of a revered Thai Monk in a paddock in Ang Thong province beside the main road from Bangkok to Chiang Mai.
Pictured is a smaller effigy of the same monk in a merit-making pavilion in the same complex....it has been daubed with gold-leaf.
The Macaque Monkeys are friendly and accessible at Wat Khao Lad, on a large rocky outcrop called Khao Takiab at the end of a sandy beach just south of Hua Hin. There are hundreds of monkeys at this temple and, while they are very keen to receive food handouts, they are not aggressive or excessively intimidating.
"Shoot through, Pinky! The free food is only for the cute monkeys..."
At a Buddhist temple south of Hua Hin, on a rock at the end of a beach. This temple is sanctuary for hundreds of monkeys...most of which looked well fed and in reasonable health.
I found this highly informative wallchart at the King Rama6 Palace which sits on the edge of The Gulf of Thailand between Cha-Am and Hua Hin.
We were visiting this fine, historic place...my baggy shorts didn't quite cover my knees, so I was asked to put on a sarong to meet the Modesty & Respectfulness guidelines.
I used this wallchart, and found it very helpful. However, I didn't mention how to keep the sarong from falling off as you walked along. I asked Na for guidance, and she soon fixed it in place with a reef knot.
