Black tern

Apr 30, 2005
Mission BC, Canada
These are an inland tern that frequents some of the shallow lakes in this area. They move very fast and are quite acrobatic. I didn't get my speed up high enough with these so there is more motion blur than I would like.

Supper is a dragonfly.

Although obviously motion blurred - especially the last one, the next two shots show how agile these birds are. The shots are one-half second apart. I would have loved to have stopped the motion in the last one, but even motion blurred, I kind of like it because it shows how fast they move.
