Shooting a bird in flight and that too when it is flying very fast is not an easy thing to do, Ralf.
However, you have done a wonderful job here. The Tern with a fish in its beak has been captured in sharp detail. The posture of the body suggests the escape velocity of the bird was quite high.
Thanks for your kind critique on my recent picture and also for sharing this neat picture.

An excellent inflight image and considering the conditions you were under you did a superb job. The colors are great the focus at the long focal length is fairly sharp. Thanks for sharing Ralf.

Bello momento capturado en esta hermosa foto. El pequeño pez en el pico y el azul del cielo lucen de maravilla.

C'est une bonne photo de cet oiseau qui vole generalement assez vite et qui ne laisse pas beaucoup de temps pour faire la mise au point.
bonne exposition et netteté.
Merci et au revoir...JP

Considering the problems you had I think you díd very well!! I like your POV and the sharp focus on eye, beak and fish! I also like the way you've caught the long wing and sharp tail typical for a Tern. Fine colours and well composed too.
TFS and cheers, Ulla

Great in-flight capture of a Common tern with its capture. Nice POV and wing position and composition against a Swedish blue sky.
Ganska soligt men kall pålandsvind

Great inflight fishing action Ralf!
Yes, filling the frame with a fast moving bird is most difficult, to say the least.
Your hard work has paid off very well..and there's always the next "fishing" trip to get it even better.
Well done & TFS!
