My Controlled Chaos
What a graceful photo...full of stillness and motion & the pale blue sky...lovely! clay ballJune 17, 2011 03:33 PM
Clayball, thanks for that. Terns are tricky to photograph as they are very swift and agile fliers, too.
Very sweet--that tern is going to have a fine feast indeed! Felicia LeeJune 17, 2011 06:03 PM
Great picture. It is always fun to catch the birds in flight.
Thank you, Felicia Lee. It amazes me the size of what these birds catch and then fly with. Think of pulling from the water something half your size and then running with it!
cannot add any more to what the previous two commentators have already stated. Thank you for sharing this beauty!♥R FusunAJune 17, 2011 06:27 PM
FusunA and Bill, thank you for the compliments and comments.
Beautiful fly shot Robin... Excellent
Thanks, Chris. It's a fun bird, for sure.
Guess he got take-out . . . Beautiful this, with seeming soft roundness of the chest and belly joined with sharp points fore, aft, port, and starboard, and sharp edges along the wing front, and the sharp truth of the predator and prey. AtHomePilgrimJune 18, 2011 09:00 AM
Incredible shot! :-) KwomblesJune 21, 2011 12:38 PM
Wow splendid flying picture Robin!!! Love it very much!
Crhis and Kwombles, thank you both very much. It's an amazing bird, capable of tremendous speed and power, though it's not very big.
The curves and points of this handsome (pretty?) tern just popped out at me. Lovely. Chrissie PissieJune 24, 2011 06:19 PM
Love that header!! Beautiful tern. A great capture. ~karen
Thanks for the outstanding photo. I imagine the next shot would be of the tern flipping that fish up and eating it in mid-air. Rodney RoeJuly 19, 2011 07:19 AM
Good catch! - yes, you and the tern.nellie
Thanks Nellie. That was pretty funny!
