[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lesser Crested Tern is a seabird of the tern family Sternidae. It breeds in subtropical coastal parts of the world mainly from the Red Sea across the Indian Ocean to the western Pacific, and Australia, with a significant population on the southern coast of the Mediterranean on two islands off the Libyan coast. Accidental breeding has also been reported in Italy and France. The Australian birds are probably sedentary, but other populations are migratory, wintering south to South Africa. (wiki)

Hello Tom

Excellent photo of these Terns, with a beautiful
light coming on them, fine POV, DOF, excellent contrast, TFS


Hello Tom,
Just after uploading my post, I have seen yours. This is great meeting, with same genus and same sea:) But species is different. You nicely captured them on rock. Nicely composed and presented. Thanks for sharing.
Best wishes
