This is my contribution to Ronovan’s Haiku challenge, a must experience for all haiku writers. See at https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/2015/09/28/ronovanwrites-weekly-haiku-poetry-prompt-challenge-64-tide-flesh/

This juvenile Pacific Gull had found a dead Puffer Fish in the shallows at Ricketts Point and was enjoying a feast all on its own. These fish are highly toxic so I am not sure what the Gull’s tolerance levels were. It did not see eye to eye with the flesh as the second photo shows, then it left the carcass alone.

    1. Thanks Olga, I had the images , Donovan gave me the haiku prompt. Sometimes I have the haiku then take the photo and often I look at a photo and a haiku comes to me and often a haiku comes to me and I take the photo at the same time. My aim is always to combine the two on this blog.
