Buyogan Festival – Grand Champion Pintados Kasadyaan 2013

Abuyog’s Buyogan Festival did it again! Once again grand champion of the Pintados Kasadyaan 2013. They came back strong and determined, and they buzzed their way to the coveted crown just like bees swarming to its honeycomb…

I was privileged enough to be a part of the contingent’s official photographer team – the premier photo club of Leyte and Samar – Leysamfoto Club, Inc.. Right now, I still have to sort to hundreds of photos I took during the last few days. I will surely post more photos in the days to come, but for the meantime, I found a couple of these photos to be interesting, I thought it was worthy to share it to you. Something that (hopefully) captured the determination to win the festival’s competition. These little “buboyogs” (bees) were still practicing and perfecting their dance moves just a few hours before the competition proper amidst the stormy weather outside – uncertain whether the competition will push through or not. But they still did what they were supposed to do. A special quality of the honey bee — hardwork!

The smile probably to sum it all up… bbbbzzzzzzzz.

Deep in their hearts, I think they already won way before the competition has even started. A heart of a champion. Congratulations Buyogan!
