Hi Sailesh. I like the low POV you have taken with this one very much. Detaild in the eye very good. BG really very nice. Well done, TFS. Mustafa

Very good work, Sailesh.
Good in flight shot.
The prey and the coloured BG are extraordinary.

Hi Sailesh,

A warm welcome to Trek Nature !

I love that title, very good :-)

Beautiful capture, so-to-speak. Excellent with well recognisable gleaming prey and not only the catchlight in the eye - you can actually distinguish the brown iris. The eye contact, eye-to-eye height and direction of flight make for a great visual impact. Excellent!

Only one nit: the total lack of a note to go with it ... what type of tern is it, is there a story behind the shot? What are the technical details? How did you manage this wonderful in-flight? Tripod, monopod, handheld, which lense ... I'm curious ...

In any case, great post, Thanks!


Very nice details, and a fortunate capture with this in his beak.
I like your POV and the background colours. TFS

Lovely composition with a great PoV! Wonderful colors and detail, I especially like the catchlight in the eye. DoF is super, fascinating that the body and head are in such fine focus while the wings to either side fade gently OoF. Well done !

TFS, Mish

PS Great title, too, but notes would be a welcome addition. I'm guessing it might be an Arctic Tern?

Very nice details and i like a lot the choice of the frame.
Nice colors and good sharpness.
