Conservation is always holding on, but at the same time, having to let go. Thank you for capturing this beautiful life moment, my love. I will never forget it.

Nice work in saving the tern, what is the saying "one good tern deserves another"? Okay, I can hear the groaning from here. Nice set of the tern with fish in the mouth.

Herb, very nice set and nice closeups with the iPhone.
I'm wondering if the adults sense there is something wrong with the
juvenile and are naturally culling it from the group. Either way glad
you were able to lend a helping hand.

-Tim


Hi Tim. You are exactly right. The skimmers do this to any weak or disabled chick in the colony. They are endangered here, so the biologists of the fish and wildlife service prefer to save them than have a chick needlessly killed for an injury. I agree and don't mind helping out even though it's against the natural way.

Really appreciate the rescue Herb and enjoyed your narrative.
The iPhone pics offer a great perspective, #3 is really, really cool with the flying birds in the BG.
7 - 12 are very nice IF's... well done on the whole set... really enjoyed it.

Kirk


Thanks Kirk, I appreciate it

#3 is amazing Herb. It was good of you to call for help

I'm glad I did Morris, especially knowing now that it may be skimming with another flock by now.

Nice work buddy so glad you stepped in and did this .Man that iphone 5 can take a pretty nice photo . That little guy looks a couple of days to a week from flying.Can you tell me while you were doing this were you getting buzzed by some of the other birds or did they just ignore you?Your in flights are awesome as usual you got my vote


Thanks Mike. The flock was more interested in messing with the injured bird than to bother with me.
