Bohol, Philippines

It’s beautiful here in the Philippines. I’m staying in the Visayas, which are the islands in the center of the archipelago. The people here are awesome. They’re often laughing and smiling, and always very friendly to foreigners. I just got back from a trip to Bohol, one of the easternmost of the Visayan islands. I journeyed on a car carrying ferry called colloquially a, “Roro” (Roll-on, Roll-off) to the isle of Cebu and then another to Bohol. This island is full of beautiful natural wonders. Here are some pics of the treasures I found.

A Tarsier, the smallest primate in the world. Only slightly larger than your fist. They are only found in the Philippines.
The famous Chocolate Hills, so described because they look like chocolate kisses.

We visited the Butterfly Habitat. A very professionally run preserve, and their guide, P.J. had us laughing constantly. They have these very tame butterflies that can be placed on your face where they’ll stay for photo ops. When P.J. brought us to the butterflies he started calling to them to perform saying, “Trubajo, trubajo!” (get to work!)

An Olive-Sided Sunbird. One of many beautiful birds to be found in the Philippines.
Photography fun at the white sand beaches.


About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.
