Thought this Arctic Tern looked like an angel with its wings pulled back.
It was getting ready to peck someone on the head as they walk past its nest.
Taken on Inner Farne a couple of weeks ago.
Superb Capture...well done

They don't come any better, superb
Brilliantly caught in flight.

Great in flight shot!Well done...
Absolutely superb shot! Love that detail in the feather and such a perfect freeze of motion! Hats off to you Sir! Spot on! Click!!!
Superb shot, the composition and presentation 1st class.
Excellent capture...froze perfectly with sharp details...congrats!
One of your best Simon, this is just a fabulous in flight shot....If I were dishing out awards this one would get something from me....top marks!
Great capture, all been said really. Might be worth the B&W treatment ?
Thanks for all the great comments, much appreciated as usual.
Simon this is a beauty. I love the backlighting and his colour against that blue sky.
Very nice work indeed.
Nice Shot, something in the crop not correct to my eye, but clicks count!!
This is the sort of thing I was aiming for (thanks for looking at mine, by the way) but it was nibh on impossible the day I went!
Wow....absolutely superb Simon....great title too, very fitting....
dramatic lighting and great colour
well seen and taken, guddun.
Very beautiful, spot on timing.
Absolutely superb. Had I been skilful enough to take it, and I'm not, I would have cropped closer to the wing on the right hand side. I would probably have ended up with an almost square picture. Given the way the bird's head is facing it makes sense, to me, to do that.
My guess is you considered doing so but decided not to and I'm interested to know why as I think it would improve an already beautiful picture. Neil.
Excellent capture great work well done.
Lovely capture Simon. Excellent timing.
Top notch shot Simon.
Cracking flight shot.
Fantastic capture, Simon! You've captured the intent of this Tern; I've been on the receiving end of their beak, at the request of my husband - I did have a hat on - this reminded me!
A splendid capture
Very well captured, Simon.
Beautiful image, i hope to visit the Farnes this spring
