I have found these little 9" terns to be really interesting and incredibly difficult to photograph... They are super zippy and dive unexpectedly.. Such a hoot.. comments welcome...
on a side note, another newspaper republished my article so if you missed it the first time... Bee & Thistle chef Kristofer Rowe focuses on bird photography when he's not in the kitchen- The New Haven Register - Serving New Haven, Connecticut They really hacked my pictures, you would think they could at least put decent ones online... oh well...

CC, great shots and educational too. I didn't know that these guys did this. My favourites are the first and the third.

Thanks! These little terns are actually a huge challenge to catch. Ospreys are far easier because their dives are way more predictable..

Hehe, I've been having lots of fun with terns but can never seem to get any good shots. Not like these anyway. :p
Something to work on I guess. ^^
