One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2017—Catch Light

I’ve discovered that it’s hard to get catch lights in the eyes of some birds.  Forster’s Terns are an example of this.  Last week in Cape May, NJ, we had an opportunity to photograph these terns as they hovered almost overhead searching for fish in the water to present to their mates.  Most of the shots I captured show the  bird with the black eyes barely visible in the black feathers of their heads and with no catch light to show the eye.  This is one of a very few shots I took of a hovering  Forster’s Tern that has a nice catch light to emphasize the eye.
