They may not be as hard to photograph as a hunting Swallow, but they have the added challenge of the Atlantic Ocean.
For some reason they prefer to fish at the edge of the waves, sometimes right in them.
The best way to capture them is to wait for a bird to hover above waves, waiting to spot some prey. Hover being the term, but actually they are moving the whole time, but at least it’s a little slower.
I still don’t know the ‘tell’, or sign when they decided to make a dive.
It happens very fast though.
One second they are looking for fish, the next diving head first into the waves.
This dive I caught start to finish, I can’t remember how many were just a blur. There were a lot though.
