This was such a great little photo vignette from my last visit to Fort De Soto. As I was leaving North Beach, I came across a pair of Least Terns. They were engaged in a familiar courtship ritual. The male stood holding a fish and shaking his head repeatedly while the female patiently waited for him to present it to her. I got into position just as the action started…and it didn’t quite go as the male intended!
Maybe he needed a bigger fish! ;-)
