The beautiful royal terns are constantly in flight . Constantly looking for food or protecting their young. What a sight it is to see hundreds and hundreds of royal terns all going about their daily activities !! It is truly overwhelming and one hardly know what to photograph first.
Wishing you all a great day and a very blessed one too !!!
So awesome to watch these little chicks when they become aware of what their wings can really do. Before we left some of the young terns had actually been able to get airborne for a few seconds. How quickly they grow and how quickly they learn. A true privilege to see.
Wishing you a great week and a very blessed one too !
The young baby terns seem to have amazing self confidence . This little one brought a smile to my face as he was walking the beach with such an air of importance. I love them and pray they will survive all the trials they will have to go through to reach adulthood !!
One of the risks of fishing for squid is you take the risk of being sprayed. It is a way of protection for the squid but this time the royal tern won. The ink is not harmful to the tern .
Watching the terns bringing in the food is so interesting as you never know what the next catch of the day will be.
