p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Forster's Courtship Behavior


It's interesting to watch the courtship behaviors of these
beautiful terns. Wether it's inflight shots flying in sync and
only inches apart or bringing a fish to a suitable mate.
The male will not give the fish willingly unless it's the "right" lady
and in turn she will not except unless it's the right "man".

Thanks for looking.

The last 2 are my picks Tim. I do enjoy seeing the behavior in the others. I've seen black skimmers user offerings for there mates.

Beautiful series, Tim; all the more so with the explanation about behavior. The IF shots are especially elegant; I assume these are a male bringing home the, er, fish.

Looks like there is a match between the right male and female here. That sequence is shows the behavior well, and are darned nice images. The IFs are super too. Great work Tim!

the courtship is interesting, but I like the last two flight images the best Tim
I dont think I have seen these before. They seem to have an almost silvery color.
