I like the tern, it's a very elegant and distinctive bird. You captured this one well.
One can see the wind in his feathers. Great photo!

Excellent results with this set-up. And at 300 feet!
Amazing. Well framed, great POV, color, DOF and detail.
I like the wind buffeted pose and environment as well :)
Very well done!

Nice shot of this big tern.
I had to go a long way back in your gallery to find an image to which to attach this message!
So, let's begin with a formal critique:
I am frankly amazed at the amount of detail you got by shooting through a telescope and at f/4.3 no less!
This was a great beginning, but it also serves as a super measure of how far you've come since then. Today your details are crisper (with very few and entirely understandable exceptions) and your composition has improved by leaps and bounds.
Great beginning, though.
So -- why did I go this far back? Well, I only noticed after my last critique that you had done me the honour of adding me to your list of favourites. And with the quality of what *you* produce that is a very high honour indeed.
Thank you very much

This is a beautiful shot of Caspean Tern by you. The bird looks confident & is well placed in the squarish frame. I would also call it well framed, great POV, color, DOF and with sharp details. TFS.
