The dive

Tried a new thing. Common tern diving, me panning the action vertically.

This is a panorama of 5 frames in the middle of the sequence (first ones are out of focus and/or misframed) after which the memory card had no more available space for storage (should have kept an eye on that) so unfortunately the entry into water and the emerging with prey in beak are not documented.

Amazing how they wait to fold the wings until the last 1/20 second or so.

Thanks for looking
