Terns for Tuesday

November 17, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

The balancing act of research, family and blogging has taken a bit of a hit on the blogging side.  Nonetheless, on the research side I'll be heading to Kenya in mid-December for some ivory-related business.

These pictures are a series I took at Aramoana.  It was part of the trip to the University of Otago to present a seminar on the illegal trade in ivory.  The next day we did a bit of an exploration.  Fortunately the weather was decent also.  This is not guaranteed in Dunedin.  Nonetheless, at Aramoana on the coast the wind was so strong the terns were grounded.  In fact, they all lined up directly to face the wind. These were all shots I took with my a900 and 70-200/2.8 lens.
