Least Tern Hovering

The Amazing Hover, 1

In an amazing display of flight skill I watched this Least Tern hover in place for at least 30 seconds.

He was about 25-30 feet (8-9 Meters) above a pond  and I was hoping to capture the dive.

But it never happened; after all this work he flew further down the pond to try again.
