As the World Terns

As the World "Terns"

San Francisco, CA

Every few minutes a drama unfolds in the tern colony. Gull nears terns, terns fly away and return.
Gull nears terns again, again they fly way only to return. Ah...life goes on in the world of terns...or shall I say, many happy re-terns?!

Fantastic, Dan. Ultra sharp and just a riot of beaks and wings! Sounds like the gulls run things on their own terns.

I guess the gulls are having a field day with them! Great shot and love the re-terns statement in your title!
