    I am right there with you on that Nawty...the widening of the road is totally not necessary. The same went for the road in Khao Lak being widened for Thaksin's dignitary buddies so they could park their posh motors and bloody mini buses!!! National parks getting screwed for what????

    Are there any Tigers left in Khao Yai??? I've heard from a reliable source about 3yrs ago that there was only a male found after some 7days trying to find a tiger and he was too old to breed!!!! I do hope this was due to Ranger error and helicopter pilot incompetence....However knowing Thailand they've probably been killed and sold of to the Chinese 'medicine' trade....
    There are no strangers here, just friends you haven't met yet.

    Last year there was a front page article on a Thai newspaper reporting 2 tigers that had killed and eaten a pig in the KY area.....they had a pic of what was left of the pig and I presume the footprints were what told them there were 2 tigers of different size.

    Not sure if true, heard nothing since and hope they did not get the tracks mixed up with dog hoof's......hope it is true.....I tell my daughter to eat all her dinner quickly or the tigers will come and get her and I point to the jungle behind our house.
    I like poisoning my neighbours dogs till they die cos I'm a cnut

    Bower, the best time is November during mid-week just after the rains. The weather is cool, the forest lush and is just a great time to see wildlife.

    The park should be protected from expansionists who only think about the money they can squeeze out of the budget. It is a problem that will not go away anytime soon. That's the big problem; the future is bleak on many places set aside for the public to enjoy but Khao Yai like many other parks is completely overwhelmed with tourists during holidays and other ocassions. The officials do not know what limitation is. Shame..!

    I doubt that. I have looked at some of your other stuff and it's good. Keep up the good work especially anything to do with Khao Yai.

    Nice photo's Bruce. A mate of mine is up there at the moment looking to buy a house in Pak Chong. Looks like he will be getting a few visits from me after seeing these.

    Tell your friend to stay away from the road....could get expensive. Khao Yai is fun, lot's of wildlife along the road to keep you occupied.

    Thanks a lot. I have been down the road when it comes to photographing Thailand's wildlife but it's fun and rewarding.

    Absolutely fantastic stuff. You are an asset to this forum, glad you joined.

    I love camping and trekking in Khao Yai, I tend to go once every couple of months. Never seen the elephants though, have seen plenty of other wild life, including a couple of . I've read/heard that there are Sun Bears in KY, do you know if that is the case ?

    Sir Wilson,

    Thanks for your welcome. I hope to please.

    Recently, my friend Tim Redford with the NGO 'Free Land' camera-trapped a sun bear next door in Thap Lan NP. They are also in Khao Yai but probably very difficult to see. Elephants are usually on the road down to Nakhon Nayok in the afternon but not everyday. As I said in the thread, you must use retraint and not get too close. Glad you like nature like I do...!

    Great thread, thanks; we spent a day in Pangsida in June and will go back now we know they've accomm there.
    The tiger question - one of the ranger/wardens joked "keep your windows up'" (we were on a motorbike) when he gave us the pass to go to Pangsida lookout, 46km round-trip of dirt road from the ranger office. Websites I've looked at mention tigers . . . there was plenty of elephant dung to swerve around, a huge iguana/lizard thing, and zillions of butterflies, but nothing striped with big teeth. Im sure we'd ahve noticed. Maybe the elephants keep them away.

    Just found this thread, didn't know it existed.



    We met at the launch of your book Wild rivers at the FCCT, I'm a (not so close) friend of Tim Redford's (we once worked a Smith's gig together) though we meet very these days.

    Love this shot, I think you previewed it from your next book that night.

    Photographer myself but not wildlife to be honest, I only have a 400mm at my disposal, I tend to prefer up close and personal with people in markets.

    I do know Nawty rather well though and my advice is to shoot him with a 600mm and get no close....he's infectious.

    I use a 400mm but with an f-stop of 2.8. Absolutely the best lens for wildlife work and I also use 1.7 tele-converter for 680mm on birds and distant subjects. The barking deer is 99% in the air and absolutely in my 4th book that is in the building stages. There were so many people at the book launch but I do appreciate it very much that you came. Hopefully we can meet one day again for a beer or something. I also have a 600mm and you say I should shoot Nawty, hmmmm! I'll give it a shot next time I'm up in Khao Yai...Hah!

    My 400mm is only f4, I photograph a fair bit of sport with it, but it means I have to up the iso quite a bit whereas for anything serious I like to keep the iso firmly on 100. I must admit I thought you did most of your stuff with the 600mm lens you have. I do have a 200mm f2.8.

    Of course the one thing you do have is the patience to sit still for hours on end which I would find very difficult.....5555

    I reckon a 5.56mm might be a more appropriate size to shoot nawty with.

    No apology necessary for anyone wanting to bump Brucies threads full of superb photography on a regular basis! Now, where's that tiger one.....
