Red-backed Sea-eagle (Brahminy Kite) We call this in the Phils. LAWIN, is a medium-sized bird of prey in the family Accipitridae, which also includes many other diurnal raptors such as eagles, buzzards and harriers. They are primarily found in the Indian subcontinent, Australia and the Philippines. This photo was taken at Malagos Garden Resort Aviary.
... These trees can talk the human talk, I’m sure it would be very disheartened by the manners this talking species has done to this helpless yet very helpful nature whose pretty shape was spoiled by these hanging eye-sores.
This blog does not endorse any politician, just letting you see how these soon-to-be leaders of this country show what they got in terms of environmental concerns.
Indeed, our culture is permeated with a lot of symbols and we attach meanings to it. I don’t think this symbol needs more elaboration, the way I put meaning to it …. If it’s His will then this might be the safest wheel in town.
This part of the country is experiencing this so-called El Nino phenomenon, it’s been like a month already that we have been hoping rain will come, but despite this ordeal, these children find pleasure amid our hope for rain showers to come.
I envy these children playing mindlessly to relieve the day’s blazing sun in this human-made fountain at People’s Park here in the city. It made me wonder why adults can’t do this anymore in front of many people. I want to play around too! LOL!
I took this month a go on way my home. I was struggling to take a front shot, but it’s so difficult to steer and to focus and before I knew it, the green light has signaled me to move. I wish future cities will engineer the roads with provisions that will cater the needs of the differently-abled, especially the older ones like this man. Sigh!
The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. – Anne Frank
Authorities here in the city has been dropping tons of salt in the clouds lately to come up with these drops as we are experiencing El Nino, not only many parts of Mindanao but also the drought-stricken areas in Luzon. It drizzled last night but it did not pour out the way we thought it would.
This is a perimeter fence of Sta. Ana Elementary School along Oyanguren St.; the administrators have this mural instead of ‘post no bill’ signs as unscrupulous individuals normally vandalized this wall with not so good words that are not appropriate for elementary kids. And it turned out to be very attractive.
According to the old tales if a snake plant (Sanseveria, there are actually many varieties of this) blooms it will give good luck to the gardener. Well then, I must be lucky after so many years of having this in our sideyard this is the first time this plant has flowered and I waited till all of the buds bloom to take a shot.
the past two pictures I posted .... this is Leandro, he's a grade four pupil of Ateneo de Davao University. Those pictures were taken during their Photographers Club trip at Malagos Garden Resort. This photo was during one of our out-of-city trips ... his zipline adventure.
Another shot by Leandro, (that's my sons name, he's just 10) He is very thankful to everyone that appreciated his Monarch shot and was grinning ear to ear reading all your compliments, and this is another shot from his trip.
