Intriguing...I wonder if they bring in the straw to build nests? Fascinating photograph!

Terns are lovely to watch just don't get too close if you don't want to wash your jacket.

Nice shot of that colony!

Springman said...

One can only wonder at the stories behind these photos. This looks like it may have been a messy experience. Fantastic stuff JM!

@Andrew and Springman:
You are so right! :-) All of a sudden they were flying over us 'bombing' our little boat in every direction and we had to leave pretty fast... LOL! This was the only shot of the colony I managed to take.
