Thank you Jrista. The clouds moved in just as I got set up ,so I didn't get the help I wanted from the natural lighting, but I think it worked here.

Worked on getting some BIF shots last weekend, my old fingers are not as fast as they used to be and this guy is really fast. I was trying to catch him as he flared to return to his post but only managed a couple half decent captures. Maybe this weekend will be better.

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!..."
