    Here's an oldie, from Brigantine in 2012. A juvie Forster's Tern sat on his little island, desperately calling for his lunch. I may have posted a different frame of this guy back in the day.

    D7000, 500f4 + 1.4 TC, ISO 1600, 1/1600s @ f/7.1 manual.

    A lovely frame Bill,

    Very nice light, perfect calling pose and a good looking nest. I like the reflection but it is a bit tight in the bottom. I think the green reflected reeds adds a lot but I wish it was more symmetrical.
    Did you get any shots of a handover from adult to juvi?

    Thanks Ivan. I have hand-off shots from a different spot on this outing, but none here.

    Neat setting on this one. Like the calling or what i assume begging pose. Light sure was nice. The green and blue water works well.

    I like the shot Bill, I agree a little more space at the base would enhance presentation. I appreciate it is about the light but to my eye the image is a little too yellow.

    Yes, more at the bottom would have been great for that reflection. Neat "island" this tern was perched on.
