Black Skimmer Leaving A Trail

These are the shots I have been trying to catch. The classic image has the Black Skimmer gliding by, skimming the water, leaving a small wake behind.

I have caught them fishing before but here we were shooting from the side, and above. That made the difference in catching the skimmer trail.

Luckily the bird made several passes by us.

    1. Thank you. I have wanted to catch them with a trail but never caught a decent shot before. Thanks for stopping by the site.
