PIC OF THE WEEK: 08/06/12 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2012 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

Royal Tern

(Sterna maxima)

Where: Jamestown, VA • Jamestown Ferry Crossing

Notes: Off on a weekend adventure with my good friend Paul McCroskey (www.PaulsCamera.com). We had ventured out after a peaceful morning of paddling Gordon Creek that pours into the Chickahominy River just behind the Chichahominy Riverfront Park. We were on our way to Hog Island Wildlife Management Area in Surry County to do some scouting. Neither of us had been there before. Our trek carried us across the Jamestown Ferry and there were plenty of Gulls, Terns and Osprey along that part of the trip. Once over, we got a second pass at had birdy spot, as we returned home. The Laughing Gull (above) has been sitting on the post, but as the diesel engines of the ferry revved up, some of the nearby birds scattered. Most of them circled for a moment and landed. I has trying to catch a flight shot of this Royal Tern as he approached a new perch. I was concentrating on keeping focus and when he ousted the Laughing Gull off of its perch I just happened to be squeezing the shutter release. I really like the story this shot tells.
