Carabao Sculpture - Philippine National Animal - Skywatch


The photo above is a carabao sculpture with great sky at Lola's Garden inside Eden Nature Park. This was captured during my Eden Nature Park's tour last March 2, 2009.

Philippines is compose of vast areas such as farms and carabao is the animal who always help our farmers. Carabao is industrious animal and industriousness is one character of Filipino farmers. This is one of the reason why carabao is our national animal.

Hi Explorer and thanks for commenting on my blog earlier...

That's a beautiful sky there. I just love huge fluffly clouds. At first I thought the carabao was real! And hey, you photographed that on my birthday! :o)

Isn'that gorgeous? I got it! Now it's miraculously working. Thank you for fixing the problem. I hope you did not feel obligated. The Philippines sky is reassuring.(I feel homesick).

Ms. Bonnie, if not because of yours and Bryan feedback, I will not notice that I am having a problem in my comments even I don't have restrictions on it. I really thank you for it.
