Unisse Chua travels the world and blogs about it at her website Little Girl Travels. She also has a very extensive bucket list! So far she has ticked off the West Coast of America, Philippines, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore and China, taking many beautiful (and often very cute) photos along the way. Here are some photos taken from her animal and nature collection:
Baby Goat in the Philippines – Filipinos in provinces keep these gentle creatures in grassy plains as their pets and source of income. However, in this picnic spot by the river in Pagsanjan, Laguna, these creatures are quite sneaky. Even this young goat will approach you every time you’re holding something to munch on.
Cherry Blossom Tree along Suwon Hwaseong Fortress – We were taken by our tour guide to visit the Suwon Hwaseong Fortress in South Korea. It is like a miniature version of the Great Wall of China but this one is less steep and easier to hike. Walking along the path, I found this one cherry blossom tree that stood alone by the path. The sun was just behind us so it made a distinct shadow on the well-trimmed grass below.
Busy Worker Bee Looking for Honey – When you hear a buzzing sound fluttering near flowery gardens, you know there’s a busy bee lurking nearby. South Korea has a lot of these flower gardens in tourist locations that make the scenery even better. Keeping Mother Nature close will definitely earn you some good favors.
Hungry Deer - Deer are considered sacred by Shinto believers because they think these creatures are the messengers of the gods. At the Todai-ji Temple in Nara, Japan, these creatures roam around the area approaching people who have some deer crackers for them. They’ll even follow you around asking for more!
Garden of Calla Lilies in Taiwan - Visiting the more rural areas of Taiwan will give you a wonderful view of calla lilies. These delicate white flowers are carefully cared for by gardeners and they also have some for sale.
Cherry Blossoms – Cherry Blossoms make a pretty photo especially against a clear blue sky!
Squirrel at the Grand Canyon - We decided to take a mini-adventure at Grand Canyon and we found squirrels playing around. Since squirrels weren’t seen everyday in the busy city of Manila, we were quite fascinated by the critters so we followed them around and took tons of photos. It’s not easy capturing a quick squirrel on camera if you’re not very quiet.
Twin Falls, Philippines – Cruising through the river leading to Pagsanjan Falls in Laguna during the rainy season will allow you to see more falls along the way. This beautiful waterfall is surrounded by green plants which make you feel more at home with nature.
Grand Canyon Flights - Ravens fly freely around the Grand Canyon. Capturing one in flight would require eyes like hawks and speed. These creatures are often mistaken for crows because the have the same black-colored feathers.
