I really enjoyed my Labor Day morning at Fort De Soto this past weekend. When I arrived at North Beach just after sunrise, I found the beach covered in terns. It was funny how the photographers walked right past Big Red to instead focus on the masses of terns. I practiced a lot of panning that morning, trying to quickly lock focus on the fly-bys and pan with them to get them well back in the frame. This one was my best.

Nice flight capture, Jess! Looks like you had a great weekend there. I’ll be over there for a week in just 2 short weeks. I hope the shorebirds stick around for me.
I would find it hard to walk past Big Red…tough choices!
