    I captured this image along the north beach at Ft. Desoto County Park, Pinellas County, Florida. The tern is shaking and shimmying to dry it's wings. Comments and critique welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for viewing

    Interesting shot Joe - unusual but with the addition of the water droplets the lack of eye contact doesn't bother me as much as it might with a bland background. If you had it I would have liked a bit more water at the bottom of the frame, but it's different and all the better for it

    I like the coming toward the viewer pose and the trailing water droplets. I personally wish for more eye contact, but understand you can't have everything. Nice work Joe

    Hi Joe ... cool incoming pose and the water droplets are priceless .

    I just wish for a better IQ and I do not mind the lack of eye contact
