Crested Terns
In reply to Richard Pavek, Apr 20, 2014

Here is another set of Crested Terns from SE Australia.
Captured earlier this year at the ocean entrance to a small coastal estuary.
The terns use the rocky shore and isolated beach  to rest and feed their young after fishing out at sea.

All with Canon 5D, 2x 300mm/2.8, hand held, pp using LR5.3 and resized to 1600P wide



Adult Crested Tern resting   - cropped to 75% of original


And a closer crop  (about 12%)


A juvenile waiting for food

In-flight sequence of just under 1 second.
