Skimmers in a Blur

Black Skimmers

Since I’ve been having fun lately with slow shutter speeds, thought that I’d try it out with some Black Skimmers.  Found several hundred of them hanging out at the east end of Galveston Island in the windy, cold weather (relatively speeking).  They were in two different groups and would blast off every 10 minutes or so.  Took this shot panning with the flock at 1/8 sec on shutter priority.
