Southern Thailand, september 2016

For your reports/images, made outside Europe and the "Mediterranean" countries. Not to be too narrow minded and limited to our European/Mediterranean herps.

Brilliant photos of some awesome creatures.
Not seen many shots of Xenochrophis punctulatus before - looks delightful!

And of course, lovely dendro...

It seems to be a baby dendro! Isn't it? :P
Incredible amounts of herps and wonderful pictures: we must consider that at least 5-6 experts were 10 days long in Thailand only for herping, without wives or 'kinder und kegel' and among these 3 were good photographers! :D

The photography is just jaw dropping! Very nice list considering the time you were "in situ". What lens did you use for the snake photography if I might ask?

Cheers,
Pablo

First of all - thanks for all the kind words on the photography :)

We had a fantastic, but very wet trip - my shoes still smells like something crawled in to them and died (after being wet for 10 strait days).

Congratulations to this trip and your awesome photo souvenirs!


We sure did, but we would most definatly not have seen 20% of this without the expertice ang good eyes of Tony and Aood from TonTan Travel. Not to talk about us still looking in books to get the correct ID on all the lizards and amphibians!

A fantastic trip

On this trip I mostly used a 105mm macro lens, with and withnout a 1.4 teleconvertor. But on some pictures I also used :

300mm f/4
60mm f/2.8 Macro
15mm f/4 1:1 Macro

We were extremely lucky when we found this, it suddenly sat in the middle of the road in heavy rain.

No, there are not may sightings of this snake - and much fewer good photos out there on the web.

Excellent stuff, Thor. Great photos as always, and your species-per-day -rate is very impressive.
