Spring has come early this year.
With Spring here, many flowers are blossoming, which also attracted a lot of birds.
Here is one sitting among the Kapok flowers.
The photo was taken by my calligraphy classmate Mr. Chung Kwok Fan.

I have two photos here which separately shows an early bird early in the morning.
Both photos have seascapes; both show the bird at a very small scale.
You will need to have sharp eyes to see them.
The first photo was taken locally by my classmate YM Chan in the golden hour before sunrise.
The second photo was taken by me at a river estuary near Luk Keng when the sun has just risen and the egret was looking for its breakfast.
It was such a magical moment to be alone on the beach when the sun has just risen above the horizon.
It marks the beginning of a brand new day.
Thanks the Lord giving us a new day – which is indeed our daily bread.
This is a song which I like – Morning Has Broken:
Morning has broken like the first morning,
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird.
Praise for the singing,
Praise for the morning,
Praise for them springing fresh from the world.Sweet the rain’s new fall, sunlit from heaven,
Like the first dewfall on the first grass.
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden,
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass.
Mine is the sunlight,
Mine is the morning,
Born of the one light Eden saw play.
Praise with elation, praise ev’ry morning,
God’s recreation of the new day.
The photo was taken by YM Chan to whom credit is due.

Sometimes, one post lead to another.
My yesterday post showed a bird among the cherry blossoms.
This one shows two lovely birds with Kapok in Hong Kong as background.
It was early Spring and the buds of Kapok have not even bloomed.
Picture the credit of my calligraphy classmate Mr. Chung Kwok Fan.
I am not too sure I like the composition of the original picture and have therefore cropped it so that it shows less of the Kapok.
I fully understand even the original picture is very difficult to be taken, as this requires a lot of skill and patience.
This week’s Daily Press’s photo challenge is Early Bird.
Here is the photo of an early bird among the cherry blossoms.
It is early on both counts – early in the morning and in early Spring.
Photo taken by my classmate YM Chan in Japan.
There are so many photos I would like to upload for the show.
One of these is the pavilion scene with acrobats flying in the air, above the pavilion.
Again, with water jets coming up from the movable platform and fantastic lights.
Please enjoy :-)

Macau was a place that I would visit when I feel stressed with work.
The last twenty years, however, have seen so much changes in Macau – it becomes a place so filled with tourists and gamblers.
To say the truth, I have been avoiding to visit Macau because of the crowds and the gamblers.
But the show The House of Dancing Water was so good that I won’t like missing out, that was my main recent for travelling to Macau this week.
Here are a few snap shots of the statutes and the ruins of the cathedral.
Fascinated with the statutes with the girl holding a lotus in her hand and handing it over to the boy with the ruins behind it!
