Photographed at Nickerson Beach on Long Island. The Tern was about to offer the fish to its partner that was sitting on the eggs. They are pretty good at sharing the work. :)

Axel, your Tern series is amazing, and so is this lovely image. The wing position and the fish make it for me. It's amazing!

You've really been posting some excellent images of these Terns, Axel. The light is wonderful and the oof grasses really make for a great environment.
