Watch this video I got of some Royal Terns. I got very close and you can see some taking a bath in the Gulf of Mexico near the end. This was shot on Ana Maria Island in Florida.

I like the black mohawks, Awesome you could get this close.

Yes, they didn't seem to care that I was there.

Video looks great but I'm just wondering how many hours of patience it took you to create these four minutes video!?!
(And how many cramps, as well?!) 😉😊

It takes a little while. The day I got this video, they didn't seem to mind to much that I was there. I had to set up and just let them do their thing.

lol - I imagined you waiting there for hours and being still, holding your breath not to frighten them.
I tried so many times to take some shots of seagulls that were standing only few meters from me and when I would just try to slowly pick my camera they would fly away. 🙂

Yeah it wasn’t quite that hard. Lol

Look's like a nice spot you had for the video, I have not been to that beach.
