妈妈的羽翼 Mother's Feathers

弟弟先吃

妈妈喂

在朋友家拍的蜂鸟

家门前九重葛花丛中突然有个鸟窝,里面竟有3只白头翁雏鸟。才出世几天,毛还长得不齐,瘦巴巴的,亟需妈妈照顾。

鸟父母成天飞进飞出,忙著觅食喂儿。有人靠近鸟窝时,会不停发出抗议声音,深怕孩子被猫叩走,被人类破坏。爱护之情,显露无疑。

“母爱是伟大的”,这句话多半用来形容人类,但我看来,有时人类也没鸟儿般伟大。我观察多时,看到白头翁鸟爸爸妈妈捉来各种虫类,自己不舍得吃,却不间断的把食物送进孩子嘴里,直到它们羽翼长丰,终于能自己飞离窝为止。

反观被称为“万物之灵”的人类,社会上常常发生弃婴或弃养事件,令人心寒。最近非政府组织OrphanCare就和政府联合设立一个收留弃婴的“婴儿舱”,作为被父母或未婚妈妈遗弃婴儿的诞下婴儿的栖身之所。

这是何其大的讽刺,鸟类都有爱子之心,为何人没有?

It was reported that a non-governmental organization, the OrphanCARE, has set up a “baby hatch” for abandoned babies. In the past, there were instances where newly born babies from illegitimate couples were abandoned and some were found dead from exposure. It is human instinct to love and care for our children, but some just acted differently.

Just take a look at the pictures above, birds know its duty to feed its chicks. They continue to do so until the chicks are strong enough to fly away and be independent.

Are we not ashamed of those who abandoned their children?

您的照片都拍得很好,我羡慕啦,呵呵。。。。。。。。

现今,五花八门的社会都生病了,而且还病入膏肓。因此,灌输道德教育予幼子们是非常重要的一环 。。。。

On the rise are young adults who abandon their own parents and send them off the old folks' home without much care or at least seeing them in person once in awhile.

It must have taken you many man hours and patience to capture these meaningful photos.

-小巫子--好一首白居易的『燕诗』,讽刺无情无义的儿女,但也告诉我们,今日对父母的无情,改日自己的儿女也会一样对我们无意。这种现象多不胜数,值得我们深思....谢谢。

-谢谢德希和 Jasmine

-Mei Teng and foodbin- thank you for comments
