> Comments: Came just before strong storm. The shy was dark in some places, yet the sun was till shining on Bonaparte's Gulls and Common Terns, making a cool visual effect. After going out Riley Cove Road, I caught sight of a very dark bird flitting about, which I soon realized was a Black Tern. The first 6 photos I took focused on the far shore in great detail, but had a black smudge where the tern was. Final auto focus got it right and I was able to share this pic.
