Default It's My Tern...

I was going through some older photos and came across these tern shots in flight. I never posted them because they didn't turn out as sharp as I would have liked but, feeling better about being able to share some of my "earlier" not so good shots without feeling I'll get shot down too badly. After all, they were beginner shots. Anyway without any further ado here is my first try at capturing a TIF








This one is my favorite for the way light hits it.

Each of these is better than the one before, proving that one good tern deserves another . . . .

LOL! penolta, you are just too much!

That last one is quite nice, and none are horrible. The first one is blown out quite a bit, but that's its main fault in my eyes.

Thanks guys, you're too kind!
out of curiosity I went back and looked at the exif. These were taken Dec. 08 and the last one in Feb. 09, with my Sigma 70-200mm f:2.8
(at first I thought these were taken on the same date) I'm trying to figure out how in the world I managed to take these first 2 with no f:stop setting?

Probably the aperture ring had been knocked off the "A" setting. If that was the case, then you shot all of them at f2.8, unless you were using M mode, the only mode where the camera will stop down the lens.

That's just it, Harriet.
There is no aperture ring on that lens, and the camera was set on manual.
So, that's why I'm so curious how it happened.
