Crested Terns

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
