One Good Tern Deserves Another

This image captures a large flock of Terns (Royal and Elegant) and Skimmers ascending rapidly to avoid approaching beach goers out enjoying the warm weather streaming from beyond the azure horizon. The image was captured on Little Gasparilla Island, FL; a narrow sand bar that stretched along the Gulf of Mexico.
