Sheer Luck!

Wind speed? Check!
Descent rate? Check!
Object targeted!
Scanning for safety…

I’ll get it! I’ll get it!

Circling at target
Adjusting for water reflection
Splash! Touchdown!

Taking off slowly
Flapping prize in front of my eyes!
My dinner!


Not When

I’m sitting on the beach watching…

The seagull hovering in the sky scanning the waters.
Suddenly it crashed into the water.
After some clumsy flapping around, it took off with a small fish in its bills.

What a sheer luck, I thought.
