I was hoping the bird would turn again and fish a bit closer. It wasn’t happening this time. I did catch (below) a good skim.
it’s a double edged sword when they do work close though. The distance above allows me to keep focus and follow any directional changes. Closer and it’s harder, and more likely to lose focus.
This Skimmer did turn towards me, but never dropped to the surface.
Any day watching Black Skimmers is good, getting a few shots is a bonus.
