Salt grass grows in thick patches scattered through this large marsh. The Skimmers maneuvered between them easily, at high speed. An amazing feat.
Up until these shots they had been working side to side. I could grab quick photographs when they emerged between the grasses.
This time they surprised me and made a quick turn directly towards me. Focusing on a speedy bird in flight, from straight on is close to impossible.
As luck had it they banked a small amount to my right giving me a little bigger target. Previously I wrote about using the right gear for the job. This is an example of that.
These images were taken with a Canon 7D2, using a Sigma 150-600 C lens. Both items are made specifically for wildlife and sports photography.
