Caspian Tern in Flight

I am still working on taking pictures of Birds in Flight (BIF) whenever the opportunity presents itself. The South Padre Island World Birding Center is a great place for shooting flying birds.

I got this nice sequence of a Caspian Tern maneuvering through the air. They have some really long wings!! For birders, the dark tips on the bottom of the wing are a good field mark for Caspian Terns.



  1. Ah.... to be able to fly....they make it look so easy!

  2. I like this sequence. The bird side view (where it almost disappears) are the most interesting ones, to me. It almost looks like a boomerang!
