Or birds doing strange things...
11.14.2011 - 12.06.2012
These bird shots tell something about the soul of each place I visited...
Crows are everywhere! They are one of the most successful species on the planet from what I have witnessed.
This crane is one of the rarest birds in the entire world.
A lot of strange birds and odd ducks flock to the shores of Lake Phewa. Literally AND metaphorically speaking.
Everest Region, Nepal
Very few birds can be found up as high as Everest Base Camp.
And Free Spirits:
My spirit soared just the same.
This beautiful bird is kept in a cage…
But at least, he isn't stuffed!
The Chinese Eat Everything! (I did not.)
And I found the absence of pigeons and crows in the sky to be disturbing.
But people flock to see the revered Red-Beaked Seagull when they fly into town in Kunming!
The Vietnamese keep a bird or three perched outside their business for good luck.
Some are more creative than others. (And lucky?)
I was stuck in the airport all day due to snow, and I made this woodblock phoenix. I wonder when I will return...
