Least Tern

Every out of state trip I make is usually marked by one moment that I capture that stands out from the rest. A trip that I took to Florida in early May had a great run in with some nesting and courting Least Terns at Flagler Beach, Florida. Shooting by laying on the ground and at an upward angle where the beach sloped into the ocean I was able to capture this male Least Tern courting a female one with a very dreamy like feel to it. Making the two terns appear to be standing on a cloud. One can never shoot too low to the ground. :)
