The Dive

After a couple of years of trying, I finally caught a Caspian tern just at "the moment" - that split second when its bill hits the water. Their bill and head are so streamlined, there's no splash at all till their shoulders hit the water... so hard to keep them in the viewfinder during that final plunge!

Re: The Dive

Just like a human trying to test the water first before diving in.

Re: The Dive

"A solid 9.6 from the American, British and Japanese judges; a 6.7 from the Russian and Chinese judges - those two judges say the dive was technically perfect but the form was off, the wings should have been tucked in more, but he's a lock for the silver medal"

Excellent image. Perfect timing.

thanks, Orv! it's much harder than it looks! they're moving really fast at that point, and keeping them in the frame throughout the dive is very difficult!
