Along the soft sand of Nickerson Beach, Long Island New York, a juvenile Common tern tucked in for a morning nap.
This past week was spent with world renowned photographer Denise Ippolito who’s amazing coaching lead me to this capture. Encouraging me to get down on the ground to get this perspective and slowly crawl forward to have the bird fill the frame was the object.
Time, patience and a bit of strength and flexibility certainly helped, while having the opportunity was priceless.
