The Tiny General

Earlier this month I spent a few days on photographing whiskered terns. On Lake Tisza they pretty much ignore the “tourists” and with care and patience you can stay invisible in the colony without disturbing their daily lives.

And they do lots of interesting things: feeding, fighting, you name it, they do it. My favorite time there is when the chicks are still young and brown. But don’t get fooled by the tiny plumeballs – their behavior is fully tern-ish from day one.

The chick on the image below was asking for some delicious fish or frog (I guess, because stopped yelling after getting the bottom half of a frog) during the evening feeding session.
