Winter 2010 - 2011

My favorites: Tarsiers, butterflies and more in Bohol


Picture 1: A nice picture though these Tarsiers are kept in cages with little appropiate green, too much disturbed by hordes of tourists in illegal roadside showplaces with voluntary entrance fees. - I didn't "donate"!
Picture 2: Tarsier in semi-captivity at the Philippine Tarsier Foundation, Bohol. Up to ten animals in a 1ha fenced area that can be visited with a guide. Don't expect good photos if in a small group of grouping tourists. - Leave your donation here.   

Picture 4: Giant wood spider; body 5cm long.
Picture 6: Butterfly on rottening mango, tiny wasps hoovering.
Picture 10: The Pilar irrigation retension lake with overspill. - Normally the water is in the pool and not outside?!?

Picture 11: Peanuts
Picture 12: Babies
Picture 13: Flower Garden, Panglao 360° View

Some people


Tagbilaran: Cogon market under a huge balete tree


The balete trees are said house duendes (little people), ghosts or snakes as here in the center of Bohol's capital Tagbilaran. People who cut balete trees are said to invite bad luck and die sooner than expected. This one towering above the Cogon market is complely walled in. - Click on photos and take a closer look, some people see real ghosts.

Another example of a monstrous balete is to be found along the coastal road from Tagbilaran to Baclayon. People say the tree is 200 or more years old. Balete, Bo Tree, Banyan, Bodisatva Tree are ficus trees, a tree with special connotation all over Asia.
