Hello friends, the Common Tern in his diving fishing
action pose. difficult photography because they really
are fast in their in-flight diving pose.

1/4000s f/11.0 ISO1600 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).


Mostly fish. Feeds on a wide variety of small fish,
focussing on whatever types most easily available,
sometimes concentrating on shrimp instead.
Also eats other crustaceans, insects, marine worms,
small squid, leeches, marine worms.

Hello Asbed,
A neat shot of this tern in full diving mode. Your fast 1/4000 shutter has perfectly frozen the action giving us a great look at the soon to be submerged tern. I like the framing and the colors appear natural.

Ciao Asbed, great capture of lovely bird in fantastic action, splendid clarity and fine details, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Asbed,
Nice image. Excellent capture of a perfect moment. Very good details.

Hi Asbed
a very difficult shot. To get these fast and small birds in flight. But you show us a very sharp and clear bird only a few seconds before diving. Very nice.
best regards

Hello Asbed,
Very beautiful photograph. It's easy to comment on your such amazingly captured photograph, rather than capture such picture of DIVING TERN. Excellent BG and very good focus on bird. Good work.......
Thanks for showing your work with us,
