Numenia and the Hurricane

Three whimbrels with downy fluff feathers who’re just old enough to embark on their first migration get separated when wild winds and rain from a hurricane blow one of them off course. Based on the true story of a tiny whimbrel tracked from the Arctic north to tropical Caribbean islands, Numenia’s tale takes shape in lyrical quatrains with dramatic views and striking angles, with intricate, delicate wings shown flying through the raging storm.
