River Tarn feeding

This photograph was taken in Ranganathittu in south India. River Terns are beautiful birds having yellow beaks and orange legs. They fly over water bodies and wetlands for long time looking for foods which are mostly fishes. In this area there was reportedly only one pair of River Tern. I waited for a long time and could take this photograph.
