Fragile like a baby bird.

Photo and caption by Andrea Mueller

This photo was taken at the Karatay han, an 11th century Caravanserai in Turkey. A caravanserai is a place where weary travelers would come to rest for the night as they were traveling the silk road. These two children were playing in the caravanserai and the little boy came up to me and wanted to show me the baby pigeon he had found. He was so sweet and gentle with it, so I asked if I could take his photo. His little sister was looking on hopefully and I didn't want to leave her out so I gestured for her to come in as well.
