Least Terns - Adult and Juvenile

Least Terns - Adult and Juvenile (Sterna antillarum)

This was my 1st good chance to photograph these birds. Most of the terns I see like to rest at the water's edge, but these guys plopped themselves down right in the middle of the beach. The juveniles would almost bury themselves in the sand. I guess they were trying to camouflage themselves. It worked pretty well. By the way, these guys are endangered.
