Artic Tern

28th in my Iceland series. An artic tern (sea swallow)getting a splash while looking for fish at Lake Myvatn in North East Iceland. Artic Terns migrate down from the true Artic for the spring to breed and they are very territorial dive bombing you if you get too close. One evening before dinner I sat by this wonderful lake and watch scores of them fishing along with lots of other birds and ducks. Magic.
