    ReTERNing with lunch

    OK, I apologise for the title - but they are Sandwich Terns!

    Clear the decks - bird landing.

    You aren't going to eat that big fish all on your own are you . . .

    ReTERNing with lunch

    Pity about the action taking place on a white boat which means a bit too much white, although the shades are slightly different.

    You've identified the biggest issue yourself. Good stuff capturing birds in the act of feeding like this. But the 'too much white' is the problem, because you have nailed the focus and exposure on the birds very well.

    My goodness! Look at those feathers! Beautiful birds! I don't know what to say about the white but, Donald's right - you nailed the focus and exposure on the birds.

    This was with the Canon 70-200 IS lens. I was able to get reasonably close with my dinghy and slowly drifted past.

    I like 'em Geoff, but I can't really add to the earlier comments.
