Island life 2013

Some wildlife.

Some flying insects that like to swarm near holes in wood fences and such. We're not sure what its Thai name is (or English for that matter), but it sounds something like "shamallow," which is French for marshmallow.

The overly confident monitor lizard (this species is normally very, very shy and runs for cover at the sound of our approach) lives in the park on the island and often faces off against dogs.
