Another one of the black terns at their colony. These beautiful terns came real close this one day. The next time I tried I didn't get them nearly as close, Terned out that it was the direction of the wind that determined the success rate of my in-flight shots

Dag Jeroen,

Het lijkt wel een biddende zwarte stern. Mooi scherp en leuke achtergrond.


Hello Jeroen,
This is a very good inflight shot of the black tern. I like fine details, natural colours and blurred BG. Well done!

hallo Jeroen
wat is die mooi en zo goed scherp
perfect zo uit de lucht
groetjes lou

Hallo Jeroen,
a superb capture of the Black Tern in flight, perfect focusing and splendid lighting, a very pleasant composition with a beautiful posture of this marvellous bird.
Best regards

Hello Jeroen
I've never succeeded in capturing that species. I have a lot of tails nd a lot of heads but I don't have a complete bird.LOL You got a good shot here, even the blacjeye in the black plumage. Fine details and beautiful background.

great flight capture, TFS Ori
