I can imagine you must have great memories.  When we stayed at the Higherland Inn and said that we came from Hong Kong, the young man in-charge there immediately showed us two beautiful bird photos hung up on a wall in the main room.  He appeared that he liked the photos very much.  He knew they were shot by a Hong Kong person, though he thought the person was a Chinese.  He knew there was a photographer's name on the photos but it could not be seen directly as it was covered by the frame.  He regreted that he did not know the photographer as he only started working there since Novermber last year.  He took down a photo and opened the frame in front of us.  It revealed a name of "Jemi & John Holmes".  We promised we shall send him a photo of the photographers.

Thank you for the bird ids.
