A series of images of a Black Skimmer feeding as it was skimming through the water in one of the channels along the Wildlife Drive at the Brigantine Division of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, Brigantine Division. It seems like it also had a damaged feather on one wing. All images were taken with a Canon 1D mkIV with a 400mm DO lens & 1.4X Teleconverter.
They have an interesting feeding style, I must say!
Yes, they do! It is fun to see them skimming along the water feeding!
That first shot is fabulous, Reed!
Thanks so much Donna! They were fun to photograph! Usually they are skimming farther out in the channels so it was fun to photograph them closer up!
I always enjoy seeing images of this action, Reed. Never seen it in person. Nice captures.
Thanks Steve! They are fun to watch & photograph!
That second shot is fantastic!
Thanks so much! They are usually farther out so it was nice to get some images when they were skimming closer to me!
