Common Tern Hovering Before Dive

This Common Tern was working this area for food in front of us. It turned head on to us and was flapping away before diving into the water to catch a fish. I liked the angle because it was head on to us instead of the usual side view. It still worked the area for a while, diving and hovering.  Then moved down the waterway away from us.
