Black Skimmers At Brigantine

More Black Skimmers fishing at the Brigantine Division of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Oceanville New Jersey. These were photographed @ 600mm with the Tamron 150 – 600mm lens on a Canon R. They are cropped in a little to concentrate on the Skimmer.

Black Skimmers FlyBy

A group of Black Skimmers flying by, heading to another area at the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Oceanville NJ. They were working an area farther out in the water when they changed direction and flew by me. They are fun to photograph when they go back and forth fishing an area, with their lower mandible streaking through the water. But this small group was just moving on to fish further out.

 

 

 

 

Black Skimmer Misses A Meal

We were photographing Black Skimmers at the Brigantine Division of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge. This one was working an area, going back and forth, but did not seem to have much luck catching a meal.
