“The reason birds can fly and we can't is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.”

J.M. Barrie, The Little White Bird

Thanks all of your for your incredible comments to my yesterday's picture. That place was really heaven-like.

This picture was taken shortly after that, where after shooting this pelican about 50 times I did finally manage to get it in a good moment in its flight.

I am right now spending time in Hanoi, Vietnam and having a great time. Hopefully tomorrow I shall be able to post for you all an incredible picture of Halong Bay, where I was yesterday, in the middle of nowhere, but about 2000 floating islands.

What a wonderful presence the bird has . . it feels a sudden surprise in the image - perhaps it was in reality !
