Black tern

  1. 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.
