I think his bird just took a tern for the worse. :o
Nice!

@Northstar - Love watching them catch large fish.

Here is a 'side portrait' of a Greylag Goose, now something of a resident now at one of the local lakes.  I'm thinking about trying to recreate this with my 100mm macro lens but pretty sure that will involve some enticement.

Great shot! Recently saw some Graylag's here in Colorado. Seems they are mainly a Russian species, but they have been cross-breeding with the common Canada Goose, so a diluted variety is showing up in the states lately.

It is the skeleton of an old, dead bird. Rather morbid...

IMO, 'portrait' implies a living subject. 

I agree.

I think his bird just took a tern for the worse. :o
Not to worry. I am sure it was reborn. After all one tern deserves another...
