When I was in Peru, one thing I kept trying to get was a good photo of a tern in flight (and one diving). I never succeeded.
Luckily, Illinois has terns too.
Because one good tern deserves another
Turns out you can use a 400mm telephoto lens as a macro lens when you need to.
Taken with my low-light camera in rather lower light than it was designed for.
As I’ve said before, it never really gets too dark for photography. It just gets progressively more impressionistic outside.
