Diving Terns

There were several terns diving for fish near me on the day I took these shots. They didn't seem to be very successful in all their attempts. I only saw them come up with fish on a couple of occasions and only small ones each time.

I wasn't blessed with good lighting, it clouded over almost as soon as I arrived but at least it gave me the advantage of being able to shoot in any direction, the birds were unpredictable about where they were going to be from one moment to the next.

I included a composite in the final image showing several captures in one birds dive as it plunged to try and catch a fish. August 18 Matthew's Lake.
