Thank you Elissa, Sherri, Brinn and Judith. I shot this on approach into Midway Atoll. I added the birds via Photoshop 7.0. The picture of the birds (just 2 of them, flipped and rearranged) were taken on the main island. They fly very close to you and look at you as if to ask "What are you doing here?". I believe they are Tropical Terns. #225823

Great image Michael, I have been to Midway several times myself and recognized the view right away. I used to fly there for the Coast Guard. #343022
