Khao Yai National Park – Day 5

14 March 2012
[ Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3 | Day 4 | Day 5 ]

Finally time to go home! But before we left our cabin, I woke up early to shoot the bunch of treehoppers in front of the cabin which seemed to be mimicking thorns. After which, we had an unforgettable episode with the resident monkeys….

Behind the scenes shots from Melvyn’s Sony TX5, Nicky’s Galaxy SII, David’s LX5.
