9 Jumping pics with Filipino kids in the Philippines

I took “jumping pics” in nearly every country I visited, and after taking jumping pics as the sun was setting with my friends in the Philippines, some kids started jumping along with us. Below are 9 jumping travel photos I took  of and with these Filipino kids.

This was one of my many photo shoots of jumping pics

Air Muhammed! We had just taught him how to jump. I never thought that would be something I'd ever teach a child but he learned quickly!

Whale Shark Snorkeling!

Swimming with Whale Sharks!

Imagine snorkeling with massive Whale Sharks!  They’re the largest fish in the sea, and they migrate right through The Philippines annually. It provided a perfect opportunity to not only see whale sharks up close, but get in the water and actually swim and snorkel with them. Wow. It was certainly one of the highlights of my trip!

Whale Shark closeup in Donsol, in The Philippines How big are Whale Sharks?  Huge. The first one we saw while snorkeling was about 20 feet long; they can grow to the size of a school bus!  Average size is more than 30-feet and 20,000 pounds. They can grow much larger; a whale shark caught near Taiwan in 1994 was 79,000 pounds, and that’s not even the largest ever! (catching whale sharks is now banned)

Is a Whale Shark a Whale or a Shark?  It’s a Shark. It’s a whale-sized shark.  Rhincodon typus – the largest fish species still around (I just learned the term is “extant” – the opposite of extinct)
