Black Skimmers are one of those challenging photographs that we all work hard to capture. We don’t catch them very often either. Like a gull they change direction in an instant and by flying so low and fast they’ve gone by before we raise the camera.
The other morning everything fell into place. Skimmers were all along this shore line, at the waters edge.
Dolphin were pushing schools of fish and all the shore birds joined in.
Small fish were in the surf so these birds could not have fished any closer.
As with anything in photography it’s feast or famine. Later on flocks of Skimmers gave me all I could handle for the day.
