tidal secrets

time slowly passes
as tidal ebb and flow
reveals more food

This Sooty Oystercatcher returns at low tide to the same section of rocky outcrop when a variety of shellfish, some attached to rocks and others in pools is exposed. The bill of these birds is shaped like a skewer and it makes short work of any uncooperative Oysters etc. They are solitary birds and live in their own worlds of meditative patience.

    1. Thansk Janice. I was fortunate to have such an interesting subject.Usually my haiku is generated quickly from the image much later after the capture. Very occasionally I frame the photo with a haiku idea, very occasionally.
