A small toad relaxing on a hot afternoon on my balcony in Phuket. Earlier he was hiding from me on the other side of the bamboo screen, but when the sun came round, he had little choice but to make friends. He’s only about 4cm long but during the night he sounds ten times bigger.

The beach wedding photo has become something of an industry on Kamala beach where every evening around sunset now many groups of what seem to be Chinese wedding couples and photographers gather to snap away. There’s a definite Monty Python feel to the whole thing as they all go through a fixed repertoire of poses.
This is Thailand! A parasail at Karon beach, Phuket. The punters are well harnessed, but the cowboy guiding the parasail in light winds? They were over fifty feet above the water when I snapped this.

Jellyfish like this one are regular visitors to Kamala beach at this time of year. And at about 20 inches in diameter, not fun to accidentally tread on or, worse, swim into. Gail wears full body swimwear since they seem to seek her out, and still gets the odd sting on the wrists or ankles 🙁 Having said that, they do have a rather majestic beauty.
