Black Eared Kite Turning
I really wasn't expecting to take photos of this bird - that is why the exposure is so off. I was walking in the area (actually taking photos of butterflies) and the bird flew - much further away than a bird in Vancouver does. I shot with what was set. Shooting a dark bird against an overcast sky is always a poor idea.
Species: Milvus migrans lineatus (black-eared kite)

Black Eared Kite
There were lots of large predators flying around the shores in Sai Kung. I believe I saw an Osprey at a long distance. The Black-eared Kites were by far the most common - later in the day I saw at least 10 from our position on the boat.

Happy Birthday Cake
Nara picked out the cake - it was black forest cake. I think Nara liked the chocolate, but it isn't Helen's favorite kind of cake. Helen made up for a few days later by going to the fancy cake shop near city super.

Flock Of Black Tailed Godwit
I was really hurting for light - 1/25th of a second really isn't enough to take a photo of a bird, ignoring that it's through an 800mm lens.
Species: Limosa limosa melanuroides (Asian black-tailed godwit)

Claira Running On The Beach
For some reason, I seem to get more "feet off the ground" photos of Claira than Nara. No idea why.

Steamer With Baitfish
This was a very popular dish - ?????? lotus-wrapped rice in steamer. They weren't making fried rice/fried noodle dishes because they take too long and the restaurant was slammed. This was the closest thing (other than white rice) you could get. Pretty much every table ordered it.

Traditional Southern Food
These food are very common in southern China. The closest dish is ?? roasted pork. The lighter tan dish is ???? fried squid balls - the kids quite like it. To the left is ????? sweet and sour ribs. This dish is often "knocked off" in western Chinese food (sweet and sour ...) but the pork is rarely to the same standard as you see in this dish.

Razor Clams
These clams were purchased at outside of the restaurant and brought in to cook. One of the owners of the restaurant suggested the vendor we bought them from.

Steamed Fish
This fish was purchased outside of the restaurant and we brought it in to be cooked. It was live not very long before this picture.

Biking Through Restaurant
The woman in black on the left is a server. I'm sure she isn't thrilled to see a guy with a camera up to his eye while biking.
