I was shooting Coots on the water when this Tern flew by and I quickly panned for this shot. The Coot images weren't worth keeping. ;-)a

That's a nice size lunch, has to be the biggest fish I have seen a Tern with. Nice catch of these fast flyers!

Thanks Craig, I'm not sure who had the greatest luck but it worked out for both of us.

Well done especially since you weren't planning on the shot.

Thanks John. Sometimes the unexpected results in the best shots.
