Birds- A portrait


Today is 12-12-12 ... lifetime event ... many theories ... many speculations ... end of the world ... end of a calendar ... beginning of new story ... I wish all this is true ... I wish we humans undergo some kind of transformation ... that this corruption and violence come to an end ... let there be a new beginning ...

A world where each human respects the other, respects nature. Where there is compassion towards old, children, lesser privileged and animals. A world where women are respected, where there is no religious hatred, no racial discrimination, no war and no violence. Everyone has a job and so has food, shelter, education and then a dream. A world which is clean and green. A happy and friendly world where we don't need a VISA to travel abroad :)

Well, until that happens here is another bird picture for you ... Portraits are always beautiful, be it human or birds or animals! I love to catch the expressions. This bird was perched on top of a small tree and looked like it was contemplating!

I took this picture in Flamingo area of Everglades National Park, Florida.
