[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It was a perfect end of the day along the borders of the Biebrza river, in Eastern Poland. Theweather had been really good and under a setting evening sun we stood on the banks of the river. Hundreds of these White winged black terns passed by. I took many pictures of these flying birds of which most of them were not sharp or moved. I guess it takes a lot of practice to get more satisfying results. This one is one of the few sharper images, although the bird is still quite far off. Anyway, I hope you like it.

Hi Jacob,
Wonderful in-flight shot and you have freezed a fine moment here. Superb lighting and the Tern stands out elegantly from the OOF BG. Great wings and I like the catchlight on its eyes. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hallo Jacob,
Wat een fantastische opname van deze stern. Perfecte focus, schitterend licht en contrasterende kleuren tegen de achtergrond. En dan heb ik de briljante compositie nog niet genoemd.

Hi Jacob,
Nice shot of this black tern, I have never see it; that's a beautiful bird and you show it well, Good POV and sharpness

hi jacob!

Hello Jacob,
This is a very nice bird and beautiful capture of it! It must be very difficult to expose with this black and white colors... I like this composition and you even caught a little light in its eye, well done!

beautiful capture, TFS Ori
