Rubin, a young Manobo man, with his fresh catch takes a moment to look at a bird. Most families in this Manobo community depend on root crops and what is caught in the forest for their food. However, food can sometimes be scarce so often times dried fish and rice has to be bought in the barangay market (5km down the mountain). On this particular hunt Rubin and his brother Jeffery only caught two small birds and this rodent, hardly enough food for a small family. (Bukidnon, Mindanao, Philippines)
