[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Visiting the Seychelles, the island of Cousin is an absolute must. Whitetailed Tropicbirds breed here in large numbers. Tropic birds built their nest normaly on the ground, always using the shelter of a big tree.

What a wonderful scene, Zeno. Great composition with great details. The baby is just precious. The tropicbird is very handsome. Well done and TFS. : )

Hello Zeno

What a lovely ball of fluff. Sweet face. Shame the tail of Mum has been missed, but you have captured a tender moment. Thanks.

Hello Zeno, Great exposure with good details and sharpness. I like the pose you've captured with chick and mom leaning their heads close together..Interesting shot, Well done!

Hello Zeno,
this is a cute Picture, I like it. Wonderful work.

Lovely pic this Zeno and an interesting subject. Beautiful birds and amazing how relaxed they are when one goes close.
A little of the sharpness sadly lost in the scan.
Regards, Rob
ps - Do you have more pics of the fairy terns?
