Unusual Terns and Common Terns in Flight

Is there anything more beautiful than a tern in flight? Not to me there isn't! Here is a gorgeous Roseate Tern in flight.

I also think the more unusual a tern is, the better I like it. Very shallow, I know! This is an Arctic Tern. Arctic Terns have the distinction of the longest migration of any birds on earth!

This tern is common around here, but its certainly not a Common Tern everywhere!

  1. Beautiful flights shots, the Terns are pretty birds. And fun to watch!

  2. ...beautiful flight shots! There is something about their wing shape that makes them sooooo beautiful...

  3. Superb arial acrobats. I don't get to see Roseate very often over here so thanks for sharing yours Susan.


I love positive comments, critical comments,and corrections most of all!
