These beautiful rather shy shorebirds are real favorites of mine. This was an overcast morning at low tide and the sun was hazy creating a silvery, gold look to the water. This image almost looks like a mirrored reflection.
If you have been lucky enough to observe these birds in flight or in chase you know what I mean when I tell you it is a marvel of aerodynamics. Sharp turns, instant change of direction, glide, power and speed. Top Guns all.
This is simply to share my love of the environments and creatures that I prefer to paint and this Royal Tern being from my fine art photography collection.
