Arctic Tern, sterna paradisea, Svalbard

Arctic Tern ready to defend - and that means attacking the photographer - above its nest, which it constructed in gravel alongside a road at the scientific research base in Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard, 1200km from the North Pole.

Arctic terns migrate farther than any other species of any known animal - up to 70,000km to Antarctica and back to the Arctic every year, or about 2.4 million kilometres during their lifetime—the same as three return voyages to the moon. Arctic terns demonstrate that everything on Earth truly is connected.
