Jing Leed, Maeng Kee Noon, Non Mai, Non Pai, Tak Ga Tan, and Maeng Da. Wow! It is just easier for me to say,”Insects!” Perhaps I will get to try these someday. For more information about these, check out the following link http://importfood.com/thai_insects.html

The Asian Hornet has mandibles that tear and rip apart prey, a sting that delivers neurotoxins that destroy flesh, and poison that signals other hornets to sting until the prey dies. I hope they stay in Asia. This is one tough hornet.

Periodically, I come across birds that I cannot photo readily due to geographic location. This is one such bird. I never knew the Golden Pheasant, AKA The Chinese Pheasant existed, until I stumbled across this amazing photo by Thomas J. Walsh.  I read this bird is pretty native to China and Asia.

A Costa Rican friend sent this photo to me. The pink necked green pigeon is the most vibrant and colorful of all pigeons, and can be found in Southeast Asia.
