Tern and Burn

I was watching a small group of Royal Terns close to shore when they started to fly away.  Focused on the last one and caught him taking off, flying towards me and making a hard right turn.  Got several shots in this sequence.  This turn and burn sequence was good practice for the upcoming Wings Over Houston airshow.

    • Thanks Cornel. Appreciate your comment. I can’t get enough of the shorebirds along the gulf coast. I’m very spoiled.
