this is the bird that kept getting in my shots when i was
photographing the view of hong kong from the peak last week.
i wished it had flown alongside a big tape measure or something
because although i'm sure it doesn't look very big here, trust me,
it was enormous. i'd say it had a wingspan of some 20 feet !
well ok, maybe i'm exaggerating, but it was so big that it was
kind of scary. when it came close overhead some people shrieked.
oh, also it cast a big shadow over us when it flew by.
( i wasn't one of the people who shrieked by the way )
