Pic of the Day

Least Tern, Stemula antillarum:  Least Tern Colony; Biloxi, Mississippi

     Taken at one of the Least Tern colonies between Between Biloxi, and Gulf Port, Mississippi. The female was sitting on eggs when this handsome fellow flew in with a fish for her (out of focus in the background).  She jumped up as soon as he touched the sand and turned to give her the fish. Unfortunately, all I got of the transfer was the tail end of the tern.  Thought you might like this angle better.
