Black Skimmers On Shore

This is one of the more ‘challenging’ birds to photograph in flight. When they fish low and in the surf like this one though it’s much easier.

In the past I only tried to follow these birds in the marshes. They shift and turn at full speed following the small fish out there so good images are rare.

On the shore you can focus on the water line and know the bird will likely follow that path.
