CommentThe subtle tones of afternoon light really accentuated the contrast in the plumage. I used a shallow Depth of Field to isolate the bird in front of the flock and waited until it gazed an eye on my presence. Despite this a high visitation area it is always more rewarding to maintain awareness of your approach and ensure no disturbance as the terns rest from a days fishing.
