This week’s writing challenge revolves around a photo I took of a New Zealand Dominican black-backed gull (Larus dominicanus) having its lunch.
Use the photo to inspire a 150-200 word super-short story – a proper one, with beginning, middle, end and punchline (all super-short stories gotta have a punchline) – and post it on your blog, with the prompt photo and a link back to this blog for others to pick up and join in the fun. of course the story can be about anything.
This species is the most common of the three gull species in New Zealand. Populations of the other two, red-billed gulls (Larus novae-hollandiae scopulinus) and black-billed gulls (Larus bulleri), were recently found to be collapsing and there is thought that they may become endangered. Maori call these birds Karoro.
