Behind The Lens:
The agile and iconic shape of an Arctic Tern hovering was an image that I’d longed to capture for several years, however, it was of utmost ethical importance to me that I avoided photographing the “classic” version of this image. With welfare in mind, the image took close to an hour to capture as I patiently waited for a Tern to hover naturally, and, almost symmetrically over my lens. What is unique about this image is that it does not encourage or showcase the fiercely defensive and territorial dive bombing behaviour of a bird who has had to leave its nest, but instead, the beauty of a bird returning from sea that feels safe in my presence.
