Common Terns – In Color

As mentioned in the previous post, the Common Tern is pretty much a monochromatic bird consisting of just four colors – black, white, grey and red. Yesterday I showcased my artistic editing of them in black and white; today we have the same three images in color.

When watching birds in flight have you ever stopped and noticed how they use their wings? It’s usually much more than just an up, down and leveled flap. And the way they can turn their heads makes my neck hurt just thinking about it.

Amazing skillful flying “dinosaurs” they are! Which versions of these birds do you prefer and why? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy flying – Teri 📷

    You’re right. It’s pretty much monochrome in color.

  2. First shot is fantastic. Dreamy flight.

    Very pretty pictures. I like the color version better because it shows the brightly coloured beak. And if standing it would show their brightly coloured feet.
    We have river terms here in India. I understand the ones photographed here are sea birds and migratory in nature.
