Caspian Tern In Undignified Flight Pose

This one’s just for fun.  Occasionally I just need a little “silly” in my world…

I had been trying  all morning to catch a Caspian or Forster’s Tern with a fish as it emerged from the water when this Caspian decided to give a vigorous shake in flight to rid itself of a huge water load.  This was a difficult exposure and I wish I’d had just a bit more shutter speed for the action but liked the goofy flight posture and flying water.
