    Just so beautifully done, Celeste.. your placement of the tern really is perfect too allowing for the message to stand out….I so like terns but they are so tough to capture.. we have Caspians at the pond and they are amazing to watch as they dive for food….

    A very poignant card…

  • Thanks, Katherine! I was shooting quite rapidly, as this tern kept flying toward a group of us photographers. I knew this image would be great for a card, if only I could come up with the right words.:)
