Skywatch Friday No. 65 & Camera-Critters 79

This is a common tern just ready to plunge-dive into the ocean for its meal. I photographed the bird at South Cape Beach over at Cape Cod during the summer. In the background was a huge kite flied by a beach goer.

Lucky bird, it got its fish.

Now it is ready for another assault.

These are excellent shot! Great capture of the bird with a fish, and I really like the one with the kite in the background, too.

Wow, that is so beautiful, great capture of the bird and the kite, the kite highlighted the bird. Have a great weekend. It will be very cooling now in Taiwan, a good place to live.
