It seems the word is out in the Black Skimmer world.

They have found the water is low, and fishing is easy.

I have been back out to more marshes since the first day I spotted Skimmers. We went to multiple marshlands, all had flocks of Black Skimmers, some in the hundreds.

Time to use larger memory cards. I am thankful for 10 shots a second, you need absolutely need it.

However, 1,000 shots per card (my limit) means I better have 3 sets of cards (we shoot 2 cards at the same time).

  1. So we’re both wondering.. is that 1000 shots + backup per pair of cards, or do you get 2000 shots per pair of cards?

    1. I get 1,000 shots on a card, and the second card is a backup. Pretty much a way to be sure I get everything. Cards can go bad.

      However, I can replace cards on a busy day and start all over. . Which is what happened the other day. I had about 1,500 photographs for the day.

      Sounds like a lot but when shooting action images holding down the shutter can get 20 photos at a time.
