Poetry in Motion

Nature can take your breath away.

On a recent sailing trip in the British Virgin Islands, we caught a rare glimpse of a spectacular bird. Rare because they are seabirds, and are only around land during breeding season. Spectacular because these White-Tailed Tropicbirds have a long white tail plume equal to the length of their body.

We saw a pair nesting in a rocky crevice on a remote island, and I managed to capture a photo of one in flight.

To see them soar and glide in the strong ocean winds was a breathtaking experience.

When have you experienced something you would call “poetry in motion”?
