The beauty of terns in fog

These were taken on my last visit to Nickerson Beach, Long Island, NY about a week ago. The morning started with fog and the forecast was for severe thunder storms later in the day so I was on the look out for the front in the distance. All of these photos are taken near the nesting area which has been roped off and I've got my tripod set up low with me kneeling behind it just outside of the roped off area. My goal shooting from this position was to include the lovely environment in the images. There are about one thousand terns in the nesting area though that's a guess as I have not seen them all in the air. More may arrive while a few have started to nest.

1) Tern racing past me

2) Head on

3) Approaching nest

4) Passing with the dunes in the background

5) Landing

6) Landing from the side

7) And then it rained

Comments and suggestions welcome,
