Crested Tern

Thalasseus bergii.

We were shadowed by a Crested Tern a couple of times while on the beach which meant nice close-up in-flight photograph opportunities for those of us with hand-holdable lenses.

    [] I've got a few more of this fellow, but liked the blue background on this one (the others had a cloudy sky).
    [] Danke :)
    [] The one I liked the most, despite the cloudy background, was from more below with a full wing extension, but I clipped a couple of feathers :(

    you are right about hand holding swing the 600 around the sky is like trying to find a needle in a hay stack especially with the TC 1.7 bolted on as well
