One good tern deserves another....cough cough....um.....

Well, since this is a thread about The Birds Byrds, let me just quote them (or Pete Seeger, if you prefer...).  "To everything, Tern! Tern! Tern!, there is a season, Tern! Tern! Tern!..."

Nice shot! Hand held 600/4? Love that creamy background!

Amazing tern photos guys 8)
Now one from me...7D, 100-400L @400mm, handheld and heavily cropped.

from Wikipedia:
The White Tern (Gygis alba) is a small seabird found across the tropical oceans of the world. It is sometimes known as the Fairy Tern although this name is potentially confusing as it is the common name of the Fairy Tern Sternula nereis. Other names for the species include Angel Tern and White Noddy.
