A sea bird navigates reflections of masts in a still marina

On a very still, calm day a single sea bird wended its way through the reflections of masts in a marina; the sun was going down so the light was very slanted and a very bright white so the reflections were very clear. There were other birds in the marina, but this one was solitary.
