Fairy Terns Playing the Mating Game
Does not matter what lens you have used, I think it is an outstanding photo. If it was me, that had taken this shot, one would have only have seen 2 dots. Yours is clear and stands out well. The blue are blue and the white are white. No fault at all.
Ps. Thanks for the information you sent me on the Daddy Long Legs in your area. It was very interesting.

A particular face this type sea birds sitting on a branch. Doesn't matter what kind of lens you use. It is always a very nice capture what you show us. Very sharp, nice colors (like snow so white), fine details and a good composition. Very interesting notes and thanks for the workshop. Regards and TFS Bob

Cool shot of these two in their aerial display of courtship. You can definitely see them turned towards one another, in this wonderful capture of love on the fly.
Nice detail, color, and exposure..You could always call it "Fairies on the Fly" ;-}

A nice capture of these beautiful birds playing the game of love. In my view the details are great. The POV is also nice and the whites are well exposed and match to the evenly blue BG. Thanks a lot for sharing.
A delightful shot. You handled the exposure well and the clear blue sky makes for an excellent BG. Fairy Terns are very rare in NZ so you were a lucky girl not only to see them but to have your camera ready too. Good work my friend!

A very good shot on this pair of terns. Nice soft light and a beautiful blue sky backround. I shot alot of terns on my recent trip to the beach. This pair looks great!

Looks fun! I wish I could fly and play so freely like these two.
I love the clear blue sky that compliments the white of these birds. :) Great sharpness and well displayed. Especially love the details of the 'lines' on their wings.

This is a beautiful capture, wrong lens or not. These fairy terns are shown with all the beauty and grace of the species in flight and the POV and composition is delightful. The blue sky is just the right BG.
Well done and TFS!
