"A Photographic Guide to the Birds of HK" Book 1 & 2 (ON SALE)

   

Hong Kong is a land blessed with hills and streams. In spite of urbanization, one is never far away from a place for unwinding oneself in the embrace of Nature. For people who care to look around, they would find a great variety of feathered friends sharing the same sky with us.

While Nature lies virtually at our doorsteps, it escapes our attention most of the time. The hustle and bustle of the modern city confine our sight to the immediate and the trivial. Values centred on material pleasure distance us from Life itself. It is easy for us to slip obliviously into a form of muddled mechanical existence, in which time flows by while we remain spiritually impoverished.

Bird watching might seem like just another hobby. But years of experience tells me that it provides a path leading to our communion with Nature. It lets us see the diversity and wonders of Life, and enables us to appreciate its beauty and serenity. All my bird watching friends are happy and optimistic. In both times good or bad, their mind stays calm and peaceful.
