Skimmer At Work

Skimmer At Work

We celebrated our 4th of July out alone in some far marshes. I’m sure it doesn’t surprise anyone who knows us LOL.

Black Skimmers pulled us further and further out too. We followed them looking for openings to shoot through in the 10 foot (3 meter) grasses. The Skimmers blasted past the small open spaces we found.

Note; Black Skimmers are like extra large Swallows in that they fly beyond fast and twist / turn in mid air. They catch small fish by lightly ‘skimming’ the water with an open beak to snatch prey at full speed. They challenge the skill of any photographer, and typically win.
