Little Wonders Series’ First Episode


It’s been my plan to start this series where I will be featuring what I call “Little Wonders” comprising photos of small organisms from plant and, sometimes, animal kingdom. These little wonders are all favorites and photographed by me, of course, during my travels to different places particularly mountains in the northern and southern parts of the biggest island in the Philippines, Luzon. Little wonders are small organisms that are often neglected; yet, each of them present a striking beauty i f you take a closer look.

Today is the day for that plan to come to fruition as I am now launching the first episode of my Little Wonders Series. In this episode, the little wonders will come from my recent adventure to Laguna on my way to that famous waterfall last 06 November 2012.

Fauna

Flora

I still want to improve my photography skills so I’d be really happy to see comments and suggestions from fellow bloggers and non-bloggers on each of my posts for this series, especially pros in this craft.

  6. Impressive Bro. Except for the first photo…the rest of this insects and plants I have not seen yet. It’s like a clip for “Avatar” or from the story “Pedro Penduko.” The macro effects are just stunning. Beautifully done. Can’t wait for more. Hope this award makes your day….

      I read about this through an email in my phone last night. Ms. Connie actually commented on my ABOUT ME and she told that you nominated me for the award. An hour ago, I visited her site and I did mention how thankful I am to you and her for making a part of this prestigious award. Bro, words can’t explain how much I’m grateful for all the support you’ve given and you’re giving me. MARAMING SALAMAT!

      Don’t worry, (D)OCULAR. Those creatures, like I said in my previous comment, are harmless. Still, that would sure be a problem if you naturally fear them.

      The best I can give so far. I wish the macro feature of my point-and-shoot could do better than that but a DSLR will sure answer the details I want to present on the photos. H’m … Wishful thinking. Having said that, I still love my GE X5. I don’t think I will buy a new one anytime soon. I still believe we can go further — TOGETHER. 🙂
