This was given to me by our Managing Director. Always useful during special occasions. I almost lost it more than trice, because my friends try to nook it.
If you don’t know a what a Tiki is, a Tiki refers to a large wood and stone carvings of humanoid forms in Central Eastern Polynesian cultures of the Pacific Ocean. Well, the one in the picture is not technically a Tiki because it is not curved in a large wood or stone but instead it is curved in a large spoon on the handle part of it.
Even though the sun is hiding it doesn’t mean that we are stripped us of our early morning sunrise or late afternoon sunset. You just got to look around and appreciate thing around you.
So here comes my first post on my new segment on this blog. Anything about Flora and Fauna. The Flora is shot at the backyard of my cousin’s house Sorsogon, Bicol sometime in October 2010 with my mom and my little brother Sam. And the Fauna is shot in a Bahay Kubo near Bonga-Buyuan Gully also in Bicol but in a different trip with my 3 close Friends namely Lhisa, Karen and Fivie.
A flora (with a lower case ‘f’) refers to the plant life occurring in a particular region, generally the naturally occurring or indigenous plant life, while a Flora (with a capital ‘F’) refers to a book or other work describing a flora and including aids for the identification of the plants it contains such as botanical keys and line drawings that illustrate the characters that distinguish the different plants.
All the species of animals found in a particular region, period, or special environment. Five faunal realms, based on terrestrial animal species, are generally recognized: Holarctic, including Nearactic (North America) and Paleartic (Eurasia and northern Africa); Paleotropical (tropical Africa and Southeast Asia); Neotropical (Central and South America); Australian; and Antarctic.
“It’s as if the colors and intensity of the light is just enough to calm you. The sun is like a great big romantic, inspirational fire in the sky. It would be as if a powerful symphony was quieting down, becoming more emotional and beautiful as it dies down. It’s rays seem friendly. They remind me of an old friend, waving good bye to you, you know they are leaving but you are filled with the confidence that you will see them again.” –Wildkid740 Source: Yahoo Answers

Right place at the right Time.. =) Here is EPOD‘s Blog post..
The above photo shows rays of sunshine filtering through the misty canopy of a park in Cawayanon, Bukidnon, Philippines. I snapped this picture not long after sunrise on March 3, 2010. These rays are in essence local crepuscular rays. Shadowed regions between the much brighter rays result when leaves and limbs block out the sunlight; whereas unblocked light is scattered by fog droplets, giving the “beam” effect. The canopy here is a mixture of mature Indian rubber trees, acacia trees and mahogany trees.
