On the bright side, I bet they don't have a rat problem.

In fact, I bet they don't have a lot of problems.

Well, except for that one problem. (Ha. Ha.)

I'm guessing anything with those bright colors and that many pointy things will sting the piss out of you.

These are bee-eaters ("guêpier" in French, i. e. "wasper"):

So clearly they eat hymenopterans. Nesting is done in burrows in sandy river banks.

At first glance those birds looked like a caterpillar to me. Love that spider face too.

Oh my gosh, that’s not going to end well for one of the two, or perhaps both.

It is 'cute' but ill-advised.

An Eden's whale trap feeding in the Gulf of Thailand . This extraordinary behaviour ( where the whale treads water) is thought to have developed because pollution has made the Gulf of Thailand a hypoxic environment . Sewage outflows from the land have caused all the oxygen in the water to be used up , except at the surface . This means the whale's fish prey can only live in this surface layer . By treading water and keeping the corners of their mouth below the surface , a flow is created pulling the fish into the whale's mouth . In the panic , some of the fish also seem to jump out the water and into the whale's mouth

... pollution has made the Gulf of Thailand a hypoxic environment ...

I went on a dive trip near Reyong, Thailand. Which is a few hours southeast of Bangkok.

It was my first real drift dive which was fun, but the sightseeing itself was poor. Much better in the southern islands.

Probably a story for another day, but the current was really strong. I asked one of the better guides* if that was normal and he said he was nervous. (Ha! Ha!) It was like being in a jet skimming over the ground. But the "ground" was a lot of dead coral.


* Maybe I should put this in my expat retirement thread. The expat guide I liked was another "taken to the cleaners by a Thai woman" veteran. He had a great story about how his friends pitched in after his divorce and set him up with a high class ... Oh, wait. This isn't the adult forum. (Ha. Ha.) My "guide" was an American bum who seemed to think just being there meant his job was done and then couldn't even manage that when he more or less ditched me on a night dive. Not the standard look for one minute and wait on the surface procedure. I mean, he swam back to the boat without telling me. I had some experience by then, so I wasn't too worried, but what kind of fucking "guide" drops their dive buddy at night?
