Forster's Tern

A Tern for the Better by Walter Kitundu

Shoreline Park was quiet and windy and the birds were distant. Until the sun started to turn gold and the Forster's Terns put on a dazzling aerial display as they hunted for the strange red wormlike creatures lurking in the lake. I'll keep the text to a minimum and just let you share the experience (just click to see the big versions). It was great fun.

Just before leaving, fellow photographers and I were treated to this wonderful moment in the setting sunlight. Perfect.
