Werner Bollmann - Untiring Wings


Arctic Terns belong to the most elegant birds in Europe – at least in my opinion. I love their appearance, their harsh call and the atmosphere of their coastal habitat. This year was obviously a very good one for this species on the Varanger Penninsula. Never before did I see so many pairs of this untiring migratory bird breeding at this beautiful place in the far north of Norway.

    What a marvellous image Werner! I simply love the tones, and the slight movement on the Tern's wings is magicall!
