Get the attention of Buddha by freeing s bird

Free a bird

by Theo van Stratum

It is a tradition in Thailand, that if you want extra attention from Buddha on your prayer that you release a bird. I was in one of the bigger temples in Khon Kaen (Thailand) where I spotted this female bird seller. I waited until the right, for my photo, customer came and was able to shoot this shot. I am a very skeptical person and suspect that the birds are trained, like pigeons, to fly home after release and do it the next day all over again :-
