Forsters tern of elegant tern in Gravelines?

Very strong wind and very fast moving tern, so I went for 1/4000 sec with D500 and 70-200 AF-S VR FL, some with 2x TC in between...

The first picture was taken with my 2X TCIIIe in between, which gave 400mm and F5.6, also at 1/4000 sec (iso 800)

Bonsoir Stany,

Merci, il s'agit de la Sterne pierregarin (Visdief).
3 ou 4 couples ont nichés sur l'îlot central et il y a chaque année plus de 1000 couples sur les toits de la ferme aquacole à côté de la centrale nucléaire.
En tout cas, de bien belles photos malgré ce vent fort, les sternes en pleine action !

J'en profite pour te poser une question: je vais bientôt commencer la rédaction du compte-rendu de nos observations au PAarc, serait-il possible de mettre quelques-unes de tes photos pour illustrer ce document en précisant l'auteur bien sûr. Notamment les Hirondelles de rivage et l’Échasse blanche ?

Bonne soirée.

Thierry.
