[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends, almost successful photo ! to be fully
successful it should be more free space in front of
the bird (more to see of the water in the bottom
part of the photo). But I am very happy of my photo. :)

1/4000s f/7.1 ISO1000 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).


« A graceful, black-and-white waterbird, the Common Tern
is the most widespread tern in North America. It can be seen
plunging from the air into water to catch small fish along rivers,
lakes, and oceans. »

Hello Asbed,
Indeed, the composition is not perfect, but the technical qualities are excellent. Beautiful natural colours.

Hi Asbed,

I agree with your self critique but it is still a very nice shot, in focus and movement stopped, a good background and good light control.
Thanks for sharing
Regards Bill.
