[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Fairy Terns are the only terns worldwide which are completely white, beside this they have a beautiful blue base of bill which I will show tomorrow.
This is a pair displaying in a whitish sky. I was tempted to do a b&w picture but I think this looks more natural.

Hello Tom,
Fascinating photo of these terns flying in your direction. The little black spots of eyes and bills are very special. Splendid colours.
