Thalasseus sandvicensis


A lot easier to photograph when its flying towards the wing the Sandwich tern is one of the sky’s more elegant flyer. Pro tip – Always avoid photograph these in mid-day situations as the camera isn’t able to handle the contrast with the all-white plumage and the black beak.
