Hello Asbed,
An interesting image and difficult to take it in such a speed....I try many times to catch this birds in flight but they are flying very fast.

Superb catch, Asbed!

Great details of the bird. The background seems a bit noisy.

All the best,


Great catch! Seeing the Tern so clearly in front of the out of focus but obviously natural background really makes this stand out.

You are a specialist and an expert on catching things in flight. This is a very good image in excellent composition and sharpness on the bird. It is a pleasure to view. Very well done indeed.

Nice action shot! I can't wait for the birds to return. Nice detail and great composition despite the speed the Tern is going.

Bonjour Asbed,

L'oiseau est bien placé dans le cadrage. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du Sterne pierregarin en vol. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir la beauté des couleurs. Bonne journée.
