Birds of A Film Feather


We all once wish – and probably still do – that we can fly like birds. There is something magical and freeing about taking flights and seeing the world from an aerial vantage point.

It is believed that birds evolved from theropod dinosaurs, and currently there are 10,000 different species, and 2,000 of them have to migrate long distance every year. Some bird species are very intelligent that they can observe, then create and use tools to find or catch food. Parrots can learn 50 to 200 words. Hummingbirds weight only 4 grams, 1 gram less than a nickel. Ravens can copy human speech and sounds. And the most popular bird on this planet is the chicken (yes, it’s a bird).

Until we develop hollow bones and feathers (which help birds fly), we can only watch them, admire them, envy them and possible capture them in mid-air like photographer Ha Tran – who is a long time devotee to wildlife photography and bird photography in particular.
