Sandwich Terns - Love is in the airSandwich Terns – Love is in the air – Nikon D200, handheld, f6.3, 1/1600, ISO 200, Nikkor 80-400mm VR at 400mm, natural light

I can recall clearly the day I took this photograph of Sandwich Terns mating, I was sitting very low in a tidal lagoon on the north beach of Fort De Soto County Park in Florida, it was very warm and the water of the lagoon felt great on my skin when these two terns started a breeding display. When the male mounted the female and I filled up my buffer a few times while photographing them.

Love is in the air.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
