Random Photos: Insects of Cagbalete

I’ve always liked taking close up pictures.  When I first bought my first SLR (60D which was broken due to seawater), my first non-kit lens was a 100mm macro lens.  Anyway, here are two close ups of insects – a butterfly (or probably a moth due to the hairs on the wings) and a dragonfly (possibly a damselfly).  Taken with OM-D and 12-50mm lens.  With the closeup capabilities of most kit lenses (.2x – .37x), I’ve barely brought the macro lens when I go out.

  1. These photos are beautiful as usual! I loved Cagbalete Island’s biodiversity. It’s still so unspoiled. The locals and resort owners there seem very responsible about the island, something markedly different from other bastardized islands that just want to make money. I wanna go back!

    • Well there have been some changes in the island. The tourism council of Mauban is now collecting Php30 as “tourism fee” before you even board the boat (some say that Php180 is collected from some tourists). Also, there are four or more new resorts there (in addition to Pansacola, Villa Cleofas and Sto. Nino) so it’s already becoming commercialized.
