Absolutely spectacular picks. That's a real great "catch" from the bird and from you.

Just wanted to echo everyones comments that this series of images are simply wonderful.

As someone who fishes a lot, I bring along my camera each time I go hoping to catch a sequence as marvelous as this. I have a great respect for your abilities as Terns are notorious for shifting direction at the last second, darting and turning, or swooping down to grab an unlucky fish.

Thanks for sharing
Zig

I would be more happy just owning a d300 and being in a kayak off of little tim island... but being able to take these shots is a plus too

Thank you - Luck played a big part too as the water was calm and not too windy that day
