Many things are infectious. Some good, some bad and some debateable (like yawning). For now, feeling grateful for friends near and far is very infectious. I like to dedicate some photos to some of those friends whose blogs I visit almost daily.

This is for Whisky; They say every cloud has a silver lining. Sometimes, it is gold.

For Moggie; The underwater spider that you missed.

Specially for Ladyhawk; There will always be wind beneath your wings.
{Note: This is a picture of a sea-eagle though}

This flower for Sandra; For sharing the beauty captured on your lens and the sweet comments you leave on our blogs.

Night of the Masked Intruder

My house had an uninvited guest.. came in unnoticed, hid behind some stuff and was discovered when the curtains could not conceal its form. However, it was no homosapien with malice intent.

A musang (civet cat) had wandered in through the upstairs window earlier and my guess it got confused in an unfamiliar surroundings i.e. no trees and bushes. Maybe it was exploring and still being a juvenile, curiousity got the better of it.

While I was glad to see the 'wildlife', this was still my room and I did not want to wake up to find it snuggling up to me. So I tried to cox it with a carrot to come out. It didn't work the way I expected to. Rather than find the carrot enticing, it started to back away from the carrot like it was something revolting. Change of plans; Use the carrot to drive it towards the window or balcony door. Whatever works...

"Oops, I've been found out!"

"Now how did I get in and more important, how do I get out?"

Highway to the exit.
"Boy mummy's not going to like it when she finds out."

Happy Wild Orchid

ID? The stalk grows downwards and the flowers are no more than half a centimeter across.

Small but so pretty.

Predators Above & Below

Predators below such as jacks and tuna prey on the anchovies from below. The anchovies attempt to flee towards the surface where the seagulls are waiting.

Both big fish and birds feed.

Man will also feed. Here they drag a line hoping to land the big fishes.

A Gentle Leopard

A pleasant encounter with the gentle and graceful Leopard Shark. This one is about 2 meters long with the tail nearly half of the overall length.

Right Place, Right Time

Here's what the sun looks like behind a 'mask'.

The sun sets in the Kingdom of Thailand.
