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.
