I had submitted this image before in black and white. This is the original color version with a different cropping. The title was suggested by Marijana Fajql at that time. Thanks Marijana! I am entering it into the monthly theme... What can be more inspiring than the total freedom of a bird in full flight against the sky? I think this is the ultimate dream of mankind: freedom... because freedom means peace! Peace be with you all in this holidays!

Fantastic shot Raymond.I could never take one like this, the bird would have been underexposed, or blurred! Good framing too. Something for me to aspire to!
