Greater Crested Tern: Roll over Dive #02.1 The Plunge

Greater Crested Tern, Thalasseus bergii

+=======================+

Not Terribly Good Club

 

These dudes are fast, and I'm slow.

But the real reason it 'fell' out of the frame is I'm left-eye dominant.

So I can't see the 'around' as my right eye is hidden behind all the camera bodywork.

Not being able to see how far it was to the water, I couldn't work out when it would hit the water and guessed it must be close so I stopped vertical panning.

Wrong guess. :-)

 

It used to be a problem with 'filum' cameras as well, as the filum advance lever would poke me in the right eye.
