This pair of Royal Terns are seen posturing in full breeding plumage as mating season begins at Fort Desoto Park in Florida. A week later, the male will bring her a fish or other suitable courtship offering. If she accepts, the two fly off together and build a family.

Location: Fort Desoto Park, Pinellas County, Florida, USA.
