How do Carpenter bees Pollinate Flowers?

By on August 18, 2017

When a carpenter bee (Bubuyog) visits the flower, it pushes its way into the tube like bell petals in order to sip the nectar. Most of our flowering plants have large flowers specifically fitted for the insect pollination but the bell petals simply the easiest to pollinate. In doing so, they transfer the pollen from one flower to another, the transfer of pollen is called ”cross pollination”

The interesting part to show you here is the process of step-by-step pollination done by a certain carpenter bee.This is quiet hard for me to photograph while observing the bees, the good part, I’ve completed the whole process. As shown, this is how a small carpenter bee pollinate a flower

The first step

The second step

The third step, the small carpenter bee will stay for a minute to pollinate and come back again to pollinate the same flower, the bee comes and go for at least a hundred times a day.

Fascinating Sunset of Today

By on April 14, 2017

I love photography, the course of capturing interesting subjects day to day in a more meaningful way, just shows my skill of dedication. Sunset is still the best subject to touch when it comes to the beauty of nature. I’ve tried all various camera angle shots at almost the same sundown time on different locations to create dramatic and magnificent shots. This will require lots of work but I’m willing to exert more effort to be back and capture the same subject at the same time on different day to compare the difference. Somehow, surprising differences  will surely comes out because the clouds formation and weather plays a big role here.

Sunset Gallery – Manila Bay

By on April 12, 2017

Nature putting together the many shades and tone of colors with glitz and brightly colored hues of  orange, violet, blue, orange, red, yellow and pink. Variety of colors gives a brilliant result in photography. I’ve captured different angles of sunset in different locations, virtually a wild and unexplored regions is something precious but the fascinating site to photograph the sunset in Philippines are Manila Bay, Bayview and Harbour View park, these 3 locations seems to be the ” Photographer’s Backyard”

The best time to capture? March is generally recognized as the beginning of summer, this maybe a driven month from March to May, it’s the best time for sunset shooting and landscape photography. Sunset is a great subject even though it will only lasts for minutes but still the best way to document is through snapshots, it is only in pictures are the accurate way of presenting the beauty of sunset, closer view showing various color features would be truly revealed.

Lets review some of my sunset photos taken before sundown at Manila Bay  (Roxas Blvd, Manila, Luzon, Philippines) 15 Photos All original and natural photos of sunset

Mali, the Captive Elephant

By on March 23, 2017

Sri Lankan elephant named Mali inside an enclosure at Manila Zoo (Formerly known as Manila Zoological and Botanical Garden) Mali the only captive elephant in the Philippines  has already endured 43 years of extreme confinement.

If ever, I don’t want animal to suffer, I already mentioned this before for the ” Migratory Birds of Malaysia” and to repeat it once again here. I just remember the practice of one biologist in Zimbabwe, they capture animals by shooting with guns that fire darts filled with tranquilizing drugs, the same technique to capture free roaming animals.

Every year, elephants are being slaughtered and killed for their ivory tusks. I was told, most tusks taken in the past 20 to 30 years shipped through different countries around the globe. Is this a joke? Feeling so sad for this, what can you do about it?

My only dream for Mali , to be reunited with her related family in a good habitat, a native vegetation back home. How nice to see her reunited with other herbs happily waving her tusks doing greeting ceremonies with the group. Perhaps, there’s still hope for Mali, I’ll pray for that!
