I was lucky to have been at one of their fishing holes late afternoon with the sun behind my back. This is the next frame of the one posted yesterday.
At this point it was very close the surface and speeding like a bullet.
Thanks for looking.

Karl, Superb detail and pose. For me, would like to see more canvas below the bird.

Cracker of a shot Karl, one really need great reflex to capture such an action, (I would add a little canvas at the bottom if this was mine)

Love the way you positioned the diving tern in the frame – great composition. The slight diagonal tilt off the wings is a beautiful dynamic feature, Karl.
