[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After visitting the auk colony on Stora Karlso I had to wait for the ferry and amused myself by shooting these arctic terns. It's the dream moment, one shot before this was better, but the wing of the flying tern was parially clipped so I had to settle for this one.

Hope you all enjoy

Hallo Jeroen,
Bij dit soort scenes zou ik me ook geweldig amuseren. Pracht foto waar je trots op kan zijn. De kleuren van deze sterns werken ook altijd mee in een attractieve foto.

Hello Jeroen
Congratulations on an excellent photo, excellent POV, sharpness, and contrast.
Dance with natural colors.
Thanks for sharing
hello Vanni

Hi Jeroen,
Nice diagonal composition and great timing! Very interesting scene! Cheers,

Hi Jeroen,

A great action shot, poor chick thought. I like the movement in the wings, it gives the sense of action. Good dof and focus showing good detail. Well done.

TFS regards Bill

Hello Jeroen,
A wonderful moment you've caught here, the Tern parents look so beautiful while feeding their little youngster! A nice composition and lovely colours! You seem to have had a great time on Gotland this time! I'd love to go to St. Karlsö!
TFS and cheers, Ulla
