Common Tern

I shot these Common Terns last week. The juveniles are getting big and should be on their own soon.

Big stretch!

Awesome shots! They look so pure and innocent! Love the "pass-off-shot"

The shots are so crisp and clear! As if you stood very close to them.

Hi Steve,
How wonderful is that set! Gosh you got them very well! Here the juveniles are already on their own, the parents are gone. I guess the juves are gonna leave soon too. The third shot is simply fantastic!
