Photographer's Note

Carabaos are indigenous to Southeast Asia; as waves of migration into the Philippines occurred, the carabao were captured and domesticated.

The carabao is considered as a national symbol of the Philippines. Carabaos are often used by farmers in the Philippines. It is one of the most important animals in the country specially in agriculture.

The carabao is also considered a national symbol of Guam. They were imported into Guam from the Philippines in the late 1600s during the Spanish colonial administration of Guam as a beast of burden and as transportation. They were used for farming and to pull "carabao carts." As recently as the early 1960s.

You can see the Carabao all around the philippines, yes, even in Parts of Manila.

The Carabao looked curiously at me, while i fumbled with my Camera to get this shot.. I thought it was quite lucky to capture the Curious Carabao peeking through some moss covered rocks with a view of some Rice Terraces in the background...

Only Editing:
* Cropped to frame
* Sharpened very litte
* Enhanced the colours ever so slightly.

Thanks for viewing, any comments or feedback are very much appreciated, i wish to hear everyones opinion, and how i can improve.

Mabuhay! :)
