Least Tern Hovering

The Amazing Hover, 2

Further along in my walk after photographing The Amazing Hover, 1 I spotted another hunting Least Tern.

It was interesting to see the bird from a head-on angle, and how his wings worked.

He moved very little, hovering in place. I had no trouble staying focused on his position.

And I got the start of a dive. Unfortunately my view of the surface was obstructed and I missed the splash and couldn’t tell if he caught a fish.
