Waited so long for this!!

By Lillian  
Common Tern feeding the juvenile,

The parents were trying their best
to get the youngsters flying and to get their own fish
by enticing them and flying off... OH but did it rain!!

Annette and I under a large brolly, but still getting wet
But for this experience...would do it all over again

Superbly detailed action capture, Lillian. Love the upper wing blur on the swooping parent and the natural atmosphere accentuated by the falling rain. Spot-on exposure, so challenging with combinations of black and white!
