Default Black Skimmer

A seagull sized bird and fast flyer, The rascals just sat on the beach for about an hour before a few started flying. I had a hard time focusing on them with the DAL 55-300 and getting a shot of them skimming. Just wish the water was smooth, I will have to go back on a calmer day.

Fascinating bird, and great captures of all the action.

Yes, smooth water would have been nice, but, to me, these small ripples make for an even more interesting background.
