The purpose of this blog is to show off John Lofgreen's Alaskan world through his wildlife art and nature photography. It will explain his painting techniques, and report on his latest activities including exotic journeys around the world.
The scenery around Khao Sok is breathtaking everywhere you turn. Especially when the mountains are enshrouded in mists. Khao Sok is where a large cat with a very loud roar nearly gave me a heart attack as it roared from 25 ft away. The jungle was so thick that I never got a glimpse of it.
The Khao Sok River runs clear, and teems with fish. If you go there, be sure to take a lake tour. It crosses an other-worldly lake, and includes lunch in a floating village, and a walk/swim through a river under a mountain.
A Stripe-throated Bulbul.
The Vernal Hanging Parrot doing it's thing.
Sparring male Orange-bellied Flowerpeckers.
This lizard has so many names, I dont know what to call it. I kind of like Mountain Horned Dragon.
A very spindly Green Forest Lizard.
A leaf mimic butterfly. Species unknown.
Monkey hide and go seek. Who knows what this Long-tailed Macaque was doing? There are also many White-handed Gibbons, and Dusky, or Spectacled Langurs in Khao Sok.
A mildly venomous Mangrove Snake asleep in a tree overhanging the river.
A deadly, but mild mannered Temple Viper. This large female was found right outside some bungalows. I released it in the same place it was found.
