Hi friends,
Here it is a common female Common Tern (Sterna hirundo) who was sitting on her egg and heating to her little child. This little child should be very very young, almost he was a few hours old because the day before we were watching the nest and she had two eggs.
This little charran wasn't quiet seeing all around him so I prefered taking some pictures and going away.
I hope you enjoy it.

Great momment, good framing and DOF.

Hello Jorge

A great shot, well composed with nicely saturated colours and good light. Crisp, clear and sharp with great POV. TFS.

You have captured the right moment. Nice colours.
Just a suggestion: how about shooting from a much lower angle would look?
Lovely picture and TFS
