    Passed some Least Tern nesting colonies in Mississippi and had a couple parents irate at me for being in the same county as their beach. Of course I-90 was literally five feet from me so I dunno what they was so mad about!

    Only one I have gotten to photograph this year. It is an immature one at that. It was at about 400 yards and high in a tree on a overcast day, shot hand held and heavy crop. I guess more of a documentary shot.
