BIRDIE, BIRDIE ON A BRANCH

Bird 1 11 bis
Be as a bird perched on a frail branch that she feels bending beneath her, still she sings away all the same, knowing she has wings.
- Victor Hugo

This pretty little bird (mandarin diamond) payed me a visit last Friday while I was shooting pictures on my balcony. Straight away I realised that it had fled his home and was lost. As a matter of fact, he seemed to want something from me... I would have gladly helped him, but unfortunately, he flew away before I was able to do anything for him (call the animal services). Hopefully he is now somewhere safe!

  52. REBECCA SUBBIAH: It can only be a pet (exotic bird), so if it's free then it must have fled it's cage and be lost... ;-) Cheers.
