I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
Earlier this week we saw an osprey hit the water, get soaked, but come up empty. That same day this Caspian Tern also hit the water but came up with a nice fish for his trouble.
Wet and happy this time!
Perfect action sequence with incredible detail. Viewed and studied it 3 times!
Thanks much Nick, glad you enjoyed these tern shots!
Head on and everything. You both made a splash.
There was a lot of splashing going on out there, but that’s good for business!
Great action shots! Nice!
I appreciate that, thank you!
They make me dizzy sometimes trying to follow them around. Thanks for looking!
I am always amazed by your action shots…It must take amazing patience to get such incredible shots.
It was nice this time that the terns were in fishing close but sometimes they can come in too close.
I like watching them so it’s fun. Thanks Charlie.
I appreciate you checking these out thanks!
Great shots, I love your action shots. Thanks Phil.
I’m happy you liked these tern shots Linda, thanks!
Great pictures of a very fast-moving bird, Phil! Congratulations, by the way, your series of alligator loses crab pictures looked great on our national newspaper websites here in the UK!
Thanks a lot Maggie glad you liked seeing the tern and thanks for the kind words about the alligator vs. crab photos that went all over the UK yesterday. Just found out it also made the Sun online and print edition today.
Fantastic captures, Phil. That Tern does look very triumphant. 🙂
He caught himself a pretty nice fish, lots of times they only get tiny ones so I’m sure he was happy.
Thanks much Sylvia!
Glad he scored the fish!
These guys really work for their fish too. It seems like a lot of energy is required to fly and dive so it’s great to see one have success. 🙂
