While on a trip to the Cebu island in the Philippines we went to the Cebu Taoist temple and explored their gardens. Found interesting creatures around...just happy to catch them on photo before they scamper away...

Can you see them?

Cool pics Tarev. Thanks for sharing.

Oh man!! Talk about, "can't see the forest for the tree". I was look all around the bushes. Never looked at the tree in the very front. Hilarious!

Hahah! I remember what fun it was when we were taking a shot of this lizard on the tree...we were trying to be very discreet and quiet so this little guy won't speed away, while having a hard time focusing on it, since it's well camouflaged by the color of the tree trunk...while on the other side of the walkway, our friends were looking at the big monitor basking under the sun. Smiling It was a good thing the monitor was not in any hurry to leave so we got our chance to take its photo as well.
