Photographed at Nickerson Beach, feeding the chicks looks like a full-time job for the Terns. I liked the eye contact with the fish in this one. :)

I always handhold, the Terns are too fast. I think they stop charging quite late in the afternoon but I always go there around sunrise. That way only driving back can be interesting, especially around JFK.
