CommentI took this photo on a cold, windy and rainy day at the Sanctuary Lakes golf course, Pt Cook, Melbourne. A small number of birds were hawking over the greens and estuary. I managed to capture the bird the moment the afternoon sun broke through the clouds, highlighting the bird against the dark grey sky. The result was a very pleasing image which seemed to capture something of the character of this small beautiful tern.
