While taking a walk, I met these boys excitedly meandering their way in the opposite direction. They saw I had my camera and asked for a snap. I saw their bird with its foot tied to a string and made a deal: a snap for the bird's freedom. With a little reluctance, they agreed, and I took the picture then made sure the bird was able to fly off home. In the end, everyone was happy. July 6, 2011.
