|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Inca Tern was in an Antarctic exhibit with diffused sunlight from above.|
Used a monopod to get as stable of an original image as possible.
Post processing included basic RAW/PS with cropping, some noise reduction, and sharpening. The white colored rock the bird was standing on was a bit too bright so I made a layer selection and reduced the exposure slightly.

Very beautiful photo of this Inca Tern in excellent sharpness and details. Great DOF, POV and composition. Is this made in a birdpark? Very nice natural colours and OOF BG.

What a beautiful tern, and shown with exceptional detail and gorgeous coloration. I can't say I remember ever seeing a bird with a white mustache before. The contrasting colors are a real eye catcher and the exposure is right on the money. Great job!!
Dear Larry A Brechner,
This is excellent closeup, so I do suggest to improve its sharpness and brightness to make it more visible.
