Bottoms Up – Tilted Theme
She lifted her tail – higher and higher until it seemed she might accidentally tip fully forward and execute a face-plant in the water.
As she stalked her prey, there came a subtle shift in her center of gravity.
From a standing position, head and tail level, perfectly horizontal, she slowly slowly lowered her beak towards the water’s surface, the better to peer below.
As she did that, she lifted her tail – higher and higher until it seemed she might accidentally tip fully forward and execute a face-plant in the water.
She was far too graceful for that, maneuvering those huge wings into perfect position to achieve balance…
And to achieve dinner!
Thanks for the Tilted theme nudge Ailsa and WordPress.
