Crested Turns at rest

I captured these Crested Terns resting on the rocky shore at the entrance to a coastal lake 200Km south of Sydney Australia.

The adults seemed tired from a hard day's fishing, the juvenile  was restless, begging to be fed.
I got as close as I could without disturbing them.


Too tired to worry about the stalking photogapher

Ruffled by the strong wind

That's close enough

And about 1 metre to the left was this restless juvenile

Maybe the human will give me food

I'm hungry

Closer crop of the juvenile
