Artist's Description

This is actually what happens to you when you land on The Farne Islands just off the Northumerland Coast during the nesting season. You have to walk carefully through the nesting areas of the Arctic Terns and they are very protective of their chicks, so they dive bomb you and peck you on the head or ears. It can be quite painful if you are not wearing a hat.
I literally held my camera above my head and clicked away as they came at me, obviously a lot of the images didn’t turn out too well, but I got some good ones. This compilation has about 4 different Tern shots, a new sky and a lighthouse layer, it was edited with a texture and Topaz adjust in CS3, and the finished result probably owes a little to Alfred Hitchcock!
