Carpe Diem #1023 A Sparrow


[...] "Last evening I was looking out from my balcony and saw a sparrow perch on a branch. All of a sudden, with a quick jerk, she ruffles her feathers and spreads out her wings – her bodyline on an upward curve, about to take off." [...] Kala Ramesh

thunderous applause
