    Looks like one good tern that......nah never mind, it looks to me like a juvi/nonbreeding royal tern.

    Hey, I took my camera on vacation to Sanibel last weekend, too! Sorry I missed you. We stayed at Captiva at Jensen's Marina.

    Nice heron! And welcome to the Cafe, Jose!
  5. Sanibel Island is a fine place to shoot birds. Very nice series here. That tern may be a tad soft though. Keep shooting and posting.
  6. Thanks! That Heron made it really easy for me. I was probably 5-10 feet away and he didn't flinch!
  7. a tern! I wont forget now... I figured it was a species of gull.

    Thank you for the kind words! I had never been to Sanibel before, its very quiet and beautiful. I will definitely make my way there again! I stayed at the Sanibel Inn on the east side of the island.

    Thank you! The photo of the tern was cropped from a photo showing a group of several tern. I only had my 50mm when I shot this photo, so I couldn't zoom in any more. Perhaps I can PP it and see if it helps. :smile:
