Maine! Turning Tern

Least Tern: York County, Maine, USA, July 2024 — Terns will turn, and twist, and swoop…among the most acrobatic of flyers. And they are so fast! Catching them in the air is a challenge but also lots of fun. This was a cloudy day with sea fog still in the air so pretty much a nothing sky, and the terns came out of mist like winged rockets.
