it has become a joy to shoot birds with my D3 as I always run in to some who is using it and learn something new...
I think I will enjoy being a student of D3 for some times to come..

Now.. the terns..

One of the few exclusively North American terns, Forster's is so similar to the Common Tern that it was not recognized as a distinct species until 1831. Its preference for marshes enables it to avoid competition with the Common Tern, which favors sandy or pebbly beaches and rocky islands. It was named after Johann Reinhold Forster (1729-1798), a German pastor-naturalist who accompanied Captain Cook around the world in 1772.

Great set of tern action. I particularly like #5 knowing how hard it is to get them in a dive.

well done.

Harish, excellent variety with the various different hovering and hunting poses! An especially nice catch on #5 with the caught fish and coming out of the water. That one is the Forster's, but agree with Gene; actually the rest I believe are Elegant Terns. :smile:
