A Seagull Can Fly

Walking along a seawall there is a nervous and clumsy seagull ahead of me. It is waddling along, glancing back at me. 

And then, deciding What The Heck, it just steps off the wall, opens its wings and soars into the wind over the sea.

It is transformed from an awkward earthling to a graceful flyer in a split second.

Leaving me wondering whether I might be an awkward and waddling creature when I could so easily step off and soar into the sky.

I did not take the photo. I found it like, so many others I use, on Pixabay. It was uploaded by a fellow named Markus Kammermann who has taken and shared many lovely images. I contribute free images as well, but not nearly as many as Markus.
