What an emotional work - I like it very much, great symbolism...and it makes me so sad as well.

The Phoenix should realize that it is never wise to make an ash of one's self!;) (Wink)

Years down the line, when global warming finally become a big problem, this is evolution's answer.  Birds will adapt and become fireproof birds, and they will be awesome.  lol  Great picture by the way. =]
