Hello Tom,
Lovely exposed capture with nice details of white plumage,excellent composition with beautiful blue BG.
TFS and my regards,

Hello Tom,

Hope you are doing fine.My first visit to your page after a long time and in my defence I'll blame my busy schedule at the college for this but my heartfelt apologies for keeping away for so long from the pages of a true nature lover and photographer.
You have described some amazing facts about this beautiful bird with photographic evidence, I sat flabbergasted watching it all.
This is indeed a unique bird as the photos reveal and a beautiful one too. What wonderful and invaluable information about this species in the shape of some excellent photos!
Thanks for sharing my neighbour this evening....take care...warm regards/Abid

Fine composition and lighting...I think this bird looks more elegant on flight. tfs.

Hello Tom

Tricky exposure to catch this lovely snow white Tern in this situation. With the blue BG One would definitely miss the lovely midnight blue if not for your notes. Great workshop snaps too.
