Skimmer On The Shore

Recently I’ve noticed how the Skimmers, or most birds fishing, are not sneaking up on the small fish. In these photographs you can see them breaking water ahead of the bird.

Now that I have seen the small ripples I look for them. And this is actually common.

There is a trap wildlife photographers can fall into. It’s seeing the moment only through the small viewfinder, focused on the taking of a ‘correct’ image. When you do that the small details of the adventure in front of you get pushed aside.

We need to be relaxed about what we are capturing. Thanks for the conversations David. (We can talk about all kinds of things while carrying packs and getting cooked. Most nonsense, but some stick).
