A high tide yesterday created a huge tide pool on the beach with fish trapped in it. Early in the morning terns were busy diving for fish in it. This tern was shaking it off after unsuccessful dive in the water.

Cool pose and BG, I also like the pattern of the droplets.

Cool pose but the trail of splashes against the dark background really make the shot.

Nice work- I like the way the water drops show how it shook it's head.
