in a cloudless sky
Many weeks ago Jill and I composed two versions of this haiku when we watched seagulls flying everywhere in a cloudless sky. Unfortunately neither of us carried a camera.
All this time we have waited and seen plenty of seagull flocks but not backdropped against a cloudless sky UNTIL today. I was walking around Ricketts Point with my telephoto lens and mono taking shots of young Pacific gulls messing around in the shallows.
Suddenly in the distance and very high up I could see a large flock of seagulls flying back to Mud Island in the bay from the interior waste tips. Thanks to the zoom I think I have captured the essence of the haiku. What do you think?
