Sorry guys 'n gals, my camera is on the blink so I draw on a
few shots from times gone by.
On one of my trips to Goolwa, near where the Murray finally
makes it's way to the sea if the mouth is not silted up in a drought.
In the dark and decidedly threatening sky I spied an Arctic Tern,
Yep, that speck in the sky is, da da!!! an Arctic Tern believe it
or not . . .
with a little iPhoto enhancement, I was even able to identify
this graceful conglomerate of feathers.
I just loved that swallow tail in the above shot and the splayed
tail at the turn below.
and the wings held high like a Cessna with it's wheels tucked up.
PS this was a lifer for me and I wondered what an Arctic Tern was doing
so close to the Antarctic.
Enjoy the many birds at World BIrd Wednesday and thanks to Springman
at Pine River Review, we can all join in.
