Dive Dive Dive - Common Tern composite

Dive! Dive! Dive!

This composite of a common tern, performing an aborted dive at Thorpe Lake OWS, is for Wex Mondays and dedicated to my Dad. When Mum and I are out swimming with the birds and fish, Dad stays on the lakeside, keeping a watchful eye on us and our feathered friends. Can’t wait to dive back into the waters of the lake tomorrow in this crazy, hot weather!

  1. Wow, this is stunning, Sarah. Getting each individual shot is fantastic, but the series superimposed is magic, and your skill at putting them together impressive!

    • Thanks so much Chris 😊 It’s really fascinating watching the terns as the hunt. Such extraordinary flyers! It’s a real treat to be out swimming with them hunting around you. Really wanted to show the shapes and poise of the incredibly fast dive! Takes a bit of time to create these montages but it’s incredibly satisfying 😁
