Fisherman’s Ensemble

This guy wears a parasol hat on his head and long sleeves shirt, has a Monobloc chair and Styrofoam chest on his bamboo raft, and equiped with three fishing rods. I guess this is an example of a well prepared fisherman on a whole day fishing mission at Lake Lumot.

Kuhol Eggs

image

On returning to Lake Caliraya for a weekend escape from the urban noise (e.g. car engine noise), I noticed plenty of kuhol (snail) egg clusters in plants, tree trunks, boulders, boat dock, and boats this month. So apart from sitting crossed-leg on the dock waiting and watching for the occasional jump of fish in the water, birdwatching sans binoculars, reading Robert Parker’s Spenser novel, and other “doing nothing” activities, I thought about keeping stock photos of kuhol eggs.

Seeing those pink eggs very close while taking pictures, I wondered if there is some kind of pattern in the count of eggs per elongated mass. Right now, I also wonder if the egg adhesive can be used as household adhesive. Seems like the substance can bond on a variety of surfaces and is even water resistant.

In demand real estate for laying eggs

I guess any surface will do

Even on mother-in-laws tongue (plant)

Perhaps any leaf will do

Some on boulders

I wonder if they all laid eggs at the same time in this trunk

Sunday Snapshot: Canoe in the Lake

This man was paddling towards a spot in the lake where he can leave his canoe, put on his mask, and take out his spear gun. I watched him go in the water (from the opposite side) for spearfishing.
