    didn't realize what i caught on monday until i sat down to process the photos. i was trying to catch the tern entering the water and the huge splash it made. none of them worked out too well, but i found this spectacular exit. i missed the focus by a hair, but the natural shape of the water droplets was too good to pass up.

    thanks stapo. the next shot was a fraction of a second later but the droplets were absolute chaos by then.

    thanks sf.

    thanks jeff

    thanks k9. i think the camera would have grabbed the focus if the bird had exited in the same spot as where he entered the water. but still fairly impressive considering the wings are in focus.

    haha, the turning tern. thanks jeff.
