A Common Tern pretending to be an Angel.

The Common Tern hovers some 15 feet above the shallow water looking for small fish. They fly into the wind and can stay in one place for many seconds without seemingly flapping their wings. A beautiful, small but graceful bird.

These two shots are from my trip to Penatanguishene in Ontario in July.
