A Sparrowhawk Came Visiting

A sparrowhawk
Came visiting today
But I’m sure
It took something away

Beautiful orange brown chest
With blue grey back
It stood in my garden
Having a snack

Not sure what it had
Pinned to the ground
But it was small
And not making a sound

I reached for my camera
But it was gone
The bird had flown
Time to move on

  1. Eloquent poem and an apt reminder of how we photographers have to be quick, be it changing light, movement, composition – and, of course, birds or any subject!
