Chandeluer Is Terns

All....
been a while since i put anything up...
i made a run down to the chandeluers to fish during the 4th weekend....
water was crappy looking...i think do to the fresh water discharge from the bonne carret spillway turning every thing too almost fresh water....

i did shoot these images of royal and sandwich terns with chicks...i had to get into the water chest deep to get in close....
i chose these images, some becuase of patterns, and most becuase they amused me...

i had reached "bingo" on fuel so i didn't get down to the pelican and frigate rookeries...i'm sorry for that...that part of the island had taken a beating from the oil gusher and i wanted to see if the birds made it back....
