Whiskered Tern

The day I met this lovely Whiskered Tern in Bristol Zoo was bright and sunny.

The Tern, who was the subject of the photoshoot, decided to ensure the final portrait comes out near perfect and did everything to it could. While it took some time to get ready for the final shoot, I waited patiently.

By the time the subject was ready for the final portraiture, it was still sunny but beginning to drizzle.

Terns do not have much of any natural predators, but their numbers are coming down due to human activities, including habitat loss, pollution, disturbance and predation by introduced mammals.
