Photographer's Note

Most of the Thale Noi lake is a wetland nature reserve, which is the largest waterfowl reserve in Thailand. The sanctuary covers 457 km2, of which the water area is about 28 km2 with a depth of 1.25 metres. There are plenty of different lotus species and other green plants - in total more then 260 species of flora - covering almost the whole water area, but the main attraction are the birds like the purple swamphen in the picture. It's a large waterhen with an distinctive heavy red beck and forehead shield.
