Terns feeding…

Near the restrooms, half way around Black Point Wildlife Drive at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge in Titusville, Florida, when we were there for the Space Coast Birding and Nature festival, there were always a bunch of winter Forester’s Terns in the air, over a little canal where there were evidently a lot of small fish. They were swooping, and hovering, and diving…and who could resist trying to catch them in the air. The gallery shows a sampling of the shots I managed to get…but terns are almost as hard to photograph in the air as swallows, and share many of the same flight characteristics. Sony RX10iv in my customized flight mode. 600mm. 1/1000th @ f4 @ ISO 100. Processed in Polarr and Apple Photos.
