This little arctic tern is flying along one of the many icebergs that are floating in Jökulsárlón, in the south of Iceland.
The lagoon is filled with fishes that drift in from the sea along with the tides. Seals gather in large numbers at the mouth of the lagoon to catch fish during the winter, which is a sight to watch.
Large numbers of sea birds, particularly arctic terns, also gather to catch herring, trout, salmon and other fishes and krill.
At Jökulsárlón, Arctic terns can easily be photographed filing the frame, but I believe this photo puts the tern more in proportion to the iceberg.
