Mark Merritt's post about birding and a kingfisher sighting led me to dig up a haiku I wrote about one of my kingfisher sightings:
sitting still beside
the pond waiting for the king
fisher to return
The pond in question is on a small plot of land owned by my wife's cousin Manfred Delpho, a German wildlife photographer and one of my birding mentors. You can check out his extraordinary photos on his website.
