Hello Michel,
Splendid capture of these Arctic Terns on a suitable perch. Beautiful light, sharp details and lovely colours. I like the soft background too.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Hello Michel,
Kayaking in the middle of an iceberg must be quite an experience to live! Wow! This is a nice capture of those beautiful birds. Exposure is well handled in a nice composition and low POV. It could have been better if the second bird could have been in focus but this is not an easy task. This is a very good picture anyway with superb lightning :)! Thanks,
