Fantastic picture!
Amazing quality of photo. TFS

hello John

superb inflight shot, excellent POV and the way you framed
the tern on the image, excellent sharpness and details
of the wing and tail, the tones of your image are too neutral,
i permitted myself a workshop to correct that,
see explanations on the workshop, TFS

Hi John, very nice, in-flight shot of this Tern, returning with dinner. The detail is great, with good light on the bird. Interesting way you've used the full frame.

Thanks, John
