Common Tern at Kouchibouguac

I saw this Common Tern the other day at Kouchibouguac National Park in Kouchibouguac, New Brunswick. There were lots of them flying around and it was fun to watch them fish. I was really surprised and pleased when this one landed on the railing of the raised boardwalk not too far from me. I saw a photo op in the making! He cooperated, posing nicely, as I quietly creeped closer and clicked. Then he flew off to resume fishing.
