With the exception of the Birds section, almost all photographs in the gallery were taken at Rainbow Lodge or during excursions from Rainbow Lodge. The few other exceptions (marked with *) were taken by Janet, while she was in the jungle in Botum Sakor National Park.
At present, many of the photograph subjects remain unidentified. We will keep trying to identify them. Any help most gratefully received.
Huge thanks to Les Day for identifications of moths, dragonflies & damselflies and bugs.
