16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Tern attack

When you descend the boat at Farne island you alredy know you will have problems. Artic terns are everywere and you know it only takes time until the first attack.. They often assault photographers trying to get close to the nests or just walkers passing by the wooden trails. As I knew I was going to be attacked on my way to the puffins, I brought my ultra-wide angle lens in order to get them close.
