Forster's Tern in the Storm

We took a ride around Bombay Hook on Saturday despite the storm, it was just high winds and rain there. We shot from an open car window. These terns were hovering in the wind trying to fly against the wind and rain. You almost had to feel bad for them because they kept trying to go forward and were not getting anywhere!
