I have the most difficult time photographing the Fairy Terns, they are fast and fly like f16’s they possess a very erratic style of flying. So, when I am finally able to get some shots the birds they do not disappoint. They blend with the white of the sky like no other bird, the terns have smooth feathers with perfect wings and at times an almost whimsical appearance, because of its radical style many unique poses are captured. I posted about these birds before, but this time I look at them with a different eye.
Not the Blue Angels anymore but more like a mythical fairy, although I did not capture it this time, the fairy tern will suspend in air in a vertical position and study the visitor. I believe this is how it got its name.
They communicate in flight and will fly in small flocks.
