Another Common Tern reflection shot from the files... The black dot on the birds side is a shadow from a water droplet.. No sure if the comp works on this, my arms were getting tired by this time holding up the 600 which in turn made me struggle to keep straight horizons.... Wink

Thanks for looking...

I like the reflection and the water ripples behind the tern. Pretty impressive to hold that 600mm and a 1D mark3.
