The west wind was strong enough to move sand along the beach. And, the sun was in the western sky. The combination of these two factors led me to look for bird-in-flight photo opportunities. I found Caspian Terns fishing at Drakes Beach.
The Caspian Tern is the largest tern in the world. It feeds by hovering over water bodies and plunging into the water to catch fish. It is a common summer resident here in Point Reyes.
