Crested Tern

Crested Tern (Image ID 36695)
CommentI am submitting this image as it is immediately obvious it is a mating pair. The open wings on the male give the image movement and extra interest. I like that I got the catch light in the female's eye and both birds heads are sharply in focus. I am amused by the lack of interest of the bird behind them and I am pleased by the clean simple bokeh provided by the sand.
