Summer Rewind – Terning Time

As we see the humidity of our Cape summer season slowly recede like the tide, I wanted to be sure to share a couple of images of the amazing terns I have seen this summer.

The first was a surprise, from an early summer morning at Mill Landing.

Perched on a buoy, this darling fellow looked so deep in thought. The water, smooth as glass.


(I had a little fun with Photoshop as well!)

My second tern was an even bigger surprise. One morning I was busy photographing a flock of gulls at Forest Beach, and I noticed that something was perched, once again, on a buoy pretty far out from shore.

I figured it was a gull, perhaps a cormorant, and quickly zoomed in.

It wasn’t until I got home and popped the pics into Photoshop that I saw who the Mystery Visitor was!



These characters  always seem to be flying at quick, darting speeds, or perched somewhere far in the distance. With my limited camera (and technical expertise) I hope you’ll bear with my edits, I did my best!

Vive les sternes!    😉
