Six-Years Ago (10-January-2013) — Florida

Gone to See America. January 2013 Florida Road Trip. Day 8: Merritt Island.

On my last morning before heading back home I stopped at Playalinda beach. A couple of  folks were out fishing at sunrise when this tern flew past the sun.

Gone to See America 2014 Road Trip. Day 4: Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.

Tern in Flight at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge in Florida. Image taken with a Nikon D3s camera and 80-400 mm VR lens (ISO 200, 400 mm, f/5.6, 1/1000 sec). I wonder if it is related to the Arctic Terns I saw in Iceland last year?
