[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Arctic tern is the only northern breeding bird species that migrates regularly as far as Antarctic waters. They are seen mainly around pack-ice, have white foreheads and a long tail. They are white birds with blood-red bills and red legs. The bird pictured here was dive-bombing on me to protect its nest!

Un beau travail, Stéphane. Bonne composition et un excellent angle de prise de vue. La netteté des détails visibles est remarquable.
Je crois que c'est un autre oiseau loin derrière son aile gauche que nous pouvons apercevoir.

The composition is wonderful but you can clone out the other bird at the rear end of the left wing.It is a bird isn't it? TFS.
