Gaivota Pescando [Tern Fishing]

Newer Older

Depois do jogo no sábado não havia muito movimento no Aterro do Flamengo (o mau tempo também não ajudou). Mas as gaivotas continuavam na sua busca eterna para comida.

'Gaivota Pescando' em Fundo Preto

After Saturday's match there wasn't much going on in Flamengo Park (the bad weather didn't help) . But the terns were busy in their eternal seach for food.

    Very nice catch - both, for you AND the bird! :-)
    I especially love the silvery water background. It reminds me of satin sheets.

    Thanks, Pandarine.

    The silvery water background is like that for two reasons: ironically the poor light on the day, which made shooting difficult (normally this would be a more reflective blue); and the fairly still waters in this particular stretch of the bay that day - usually there are small waves which break up the patterns of reflected light.
