black tern

The fighter pilot of the plains, they pluck bugs from mid-air, skim the water pillaging pond insects and make for incredibly difficult photographic targets. Despite the 11 rounds per second, an endless supply of ammo, my Nikon’s targeting system struggled. The Terns won the day, but I came away with this golden badge of honor.🏅
