These two Caspian terns got into a bit of a kerfuffle over something or other at the local marina this afternoon... they put on quite a show!

If they "kerfuffle" as fast as they fly and fish, truly amazing shots, Rocky! Heck, these are amazing if they were virtually motionless! Extremely well done, sir.

Thanks, Rog! They don't slow down much for this kind of stuff... ;)

Terrific series, Rocky, so well done. Have never been able to get close enough for any shots of terns other than sitting on marker buoys.

Thanks, Ian. I'm fortunate in that they fly and fish just a few yards offshore here. They nest on top of an old paper-processing warehouse about a mile away from where these were taken.
