These are one of our smallest Terns in Canada, as they are smaller than a Robin. Quite hard to get in flight as they fly low, and change direction frequently, and quickly. Also the adults are quite dark, so hard to expose perfectly. Finally got a couple worth showing.

Both are delicious captures. I favor the second shot for the reflection. Really well done.

I think it's an orchestrated effort on her behalf to make the rest of us look like slobs.:headslap: Please, Marko...once again the need arises for a "jealous button".

Yes, Marko, I concur with Barefoot's request and wholeheartedly support it. We should have Buttons on here ... a "jeaolus" button would get a high work out, a "please clue us in how you did this" would be another option ....

oh oh Marko- you are in danger of having to add buttons :)
I too love the reflection shot!

Thank you all so much, as this is actually more fun, than work for me. Just glad that some others enjoy this type of photography also.
