Thank you Bill. This image is a cropped version of the original which is also in my gallery. After input from some FFP Club members, I went back and worked on it and I believe they advised me well. #5497883

Great detail and like the low profile.
Keep shooting Mickael.
I shot some gulls on the west coast of Florida a few years ago, because a few had red bills and I had never seen them before. They are native to west coast US.

Description

f/5.6, 1/640, 70-300mmVR@230mm, DSC_6247.JPG, Miami, 8:08A.M., ISO 400

I captured this Royal Tern on an overcast Sunday morning on Miami's South Beach. It is seen here in it's non-breeding plumage. This bird was part of a larger group of maybe 50. They are use to people and had a comfort zone of maybe 10 feet. I noticed little identity rings around the ankles on a few of them. The camera was hand-held. I sharpened it along with some other minor adjustments with iPhoto. I also like to shoot with the camera in the vivid mode at this time of day, especially if I expect to see some wild coloring as I did here in the birds beak and water color. Hey............. it's the tropics Mon. Enjoy!
