Got Lunch

Species: South American Tern | Location: Harbor Near Guayaquil, Ecuador

It was between trips and we were anchored near Guayaquil, Ecuador. I went ashore and was hanging out, watching terns and frigatebirds fishing and chasing each other. I kept trying to get a good shot of a tern catching a fish. I was a little late with this one, but I got it just as it left the water with lunch.

About The Photographer

Cropped marian pantanaal

I'm a world traveler who has been traveling the globe for the past 15 years, visiting places that are being most impacted by global warming. My initial photography interest was in macros of plants and flowers, but once I obtained a longer lens, I became an avid wildlife photographer. I enjoy visiting off-the-beaten-path places and capturing images of the flora and fauna. I also enjoy sharing these images and experiences with others through my web site and personal presentations.
