Common Tern Sterna Hiundo

Hi everyone, Another shot from blashford lakes. I have not seen one of these before. Unfortunately this is a large crop.

ISO400 - F8 - 1/1000 - 500mm - Tripod - Remote Control.

Thank you all for your comments and votes. Very much appreciated.

I will catch up with all your pics tonight and over the weekend.
Have a great weekend.
Ian

A couple of very good CT shots, Ian. Particularly like V2, with the Tern vocally establishing its presence.

The detail hasn't suffered too badly by the large crops Ian, I like both of these, nicely lit with no distractions in the BG. I slightly prefer the more animated version 2.
Thanks for your get well message.

Two good shots with critically a glint in the eye - difficult on thes birds - well caught - wonder what V2 has to scream about?Wink Ina
