Another Artic Tern posting this one is quite different in regard of light on that day sun was out and light was great.There was plenty of birds for a few days and one morning they were all gone without any notice,that life but since that date we never did find another major concentration at that location

Bonjour Michel,
Une image poétique présentée de manière très artistique. Le blanc du plumage de l'oiseau est parfaitement rendu, le contraste avec le ciel gris-bleu de toute beauté.
