[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The sandwich Terns were gathering for migration on the beaches of Georgia late Septmember, huge groups mixed with skimmer, royal terns and other tern species were aproachable to about 10 meters.

I thought an inflight shot shows more of the dynamics of a Tern then a dopey bird sitting on the sand.

Hello Jeroen.

Thank you for that picture of this "sandwich Tern".

The composition of the picture is attractive and gives us an exact idea on the flight from the bird. It is a very dynamic picture.
The sharpness is very good, mainly on te head and the body from the bird. The depth of field is adapted to your subject.
The colors are realistics as well as the contrast

Congratulation for that picture.

Hope to see another time on treknature.

All the best.

Hi Jeroen

Great shot of this tern in flight. I agree with your comment, flight is better, but harder :)
Good sharpness and composition

Hello Jeroan !
I have just discovered your gallery, you have lots of amazing shots - this is one of my favourites ! I love the pose of the Tern in flight, but I also like the pin sharp details, the soft colors, the tight composition. It's a true pleasure for the eyes. Very well done !

amazing capture, TFS Ori
