Birds and Four-legged Beasts

Camera Critters

This week I have photos of two different critters taken during my recent holiday in Phuket.

Kingfisher, Phuket

I think this is a type of Kingfisher. He sat very still while we kayaked around him and took lots of photos.


We hired a tuk-tuk to go the a restaurant and watch the sunset. This was one of the elephants we saw on the way there. He’s bedded down for the night with his dinner at his feet.

To visit other Camera Critters go here.

    We got to ride elephants on safari in Chitwan Park, Nepal and I completely fell in love with them! I would love to hear the story about almost getting sat on by a mountain gorilla. Isn’t traveling just the best? :grin:

    Mountain Mama – Hubby and I rode elephants at Chitwan too. It was an incredible experience seeing the rhinos from elephant back.

    I have a travel essay in my For Readers section about our trip to see the gorillas. This visit has to be one of my top life experiences.
