Crested Tern Sterna bergii

The Crested Tern is the second largest of the terns found in Australia and one of the most commonly seen species. It has a pale yellow bill, scruffy black crest, grey wings and back, and a white neck and underparts. Although it is often observed on its own, the Crested Tern also frequently forms mixed flocks with other species.

Hello Fatih,

The portret of the bird is very good. I like the light you have rendered and the reachness og grey/white color tones. The bird is well shown and there is a fine match between the colors of the plumage and the background.

Thank you for sharing,

Hi Fatih,
Excellent capture of Crested Tern in beautiful plumage; great POV and composition, sharp details, excellent bright colours and lighting.
