Terns on a post.

I am going to be “off line” for at while. On Wednesday I expect to learn which jobs are ‘at risk’ at work and immediately thereafter I will be away from home (without internet access) but will tell you more when I “go live” again later this month.

In the meantime I thought I would share a couple of Tern images taken at Rye Harbour NR a few years ago, using my old Olympus OM01 attached to a Kowa scope with a photo adaptor, shot on old fashion film and then the prints have been scanned, hence the grainy pictures.
Common Tern

Sandwich Tern
Happy wildlife watching. FAB

  4. Hmm, a post about terns on a post. Thanks for showing us the old school photos. I'm glad we don't have to wait for the lab, then go through the trouble of mucking with scanners any more. I really like your terns.

    Hurry back Frank.

    Steve B. If things get tough I'm sure I could find a few more 'oldies'. Actually I do have a couple up my sleeve for another day!

  7. These are fantastic photos, but I especially like the last one.
    I hope that your time away will be peaceful. You will be in my thoughts on Wednesday for sure. I have a British friend at work who says "vainits" (don't know how to spell it?!) when she crosses her fingers. Do you know the word? Regardless, I'm crossing my fingers for you! Cheers!

  20. Frank could I impose and ask you for a little help? I have been struggling now for two days trying to figure out how to impliment my award down the side panel of my blog...like you have done for your own. I have copied the link and tried putting it into a Text box, photo box everything I can imagine and when I save the information all I get is the code showing on my side panel not the picture...I'm having SEVERE brain fart problems!! I just can't figure it out...
