I don’t get the opportunity for a shot like this often. It was a good day for Skimmers, not to say I didn’t miss a large number.
As the day went on the light was better and we were able to find the best locations.
When Skimmers are seriously fishing they tend to travel around in big circles, moving between open water. This means you can get an idea of where they will be when they circle back around.
Sometimes you guess right.
For a number of days large flocks of Black Skimmers worked the same marshes all around the ACE Basin wildlife areas. The first day I went along, another day Ellen was shooting also. Once or twice a ranger truck came by but for the most part we had thousands of acres all to ourselves.
