Eastern Neck | Least Tern | Maryland
Least Tern flying through the sky. Trees as background.
When I visited Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge I was fortunate to find quite a large population of Least Terns in the area.
Many of the Least Terns were hanging out on a dock.
Periodically a Least Tern would take flight. Then I had to try and catch these swift birds in flight.
The fact that there were several birds and they each took turns taking flight significantly increased my odds of creating a good photo.
