[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Each time a common term brought a fish to the colony the tern would wash the fish by dragging it through the water. When they left the colony they would dip to take a 'shower'. After studying the routine for a while I could make some nice pictures, this being one of them

This is a fantastic picture. I love it. Some pictures are just worth the wait and work. The reflection in the water makes it outstanding. Not to mention the POV.

This is just fantastic, Jeroen!
Superb timing and perfect details with amazing light and exposure.
The colors are natural and contrasts are just praiseworthy.
Well done!

Best wishes,

This is a winner and my personal "Photo of the Day!
Well done!

Hello Jeroen,
Amazing, but the water has the shape of a big fish! Wonderful reflections and amazing story. Not boring at all :-)

Bonjour Jeroen,
C'est superbe dans une bonne composition et une belle lumière utilisant judicieusement le reflet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
