Hi Indrane, I like your Skywatch today! Mine is up too.
We are still 'evacuated' for Hurricane Ike as we have no electricity at our home.

900 years?! Are you not proud you have just 'taken' a piece of the history? That's why I love photography too ;)

The sky looks a little ancient too, a lowering sort of mood as the temple broods on the world we have made.
The bird is a Kite, I believe.
