Black Skimmer Silhouette

For a change of pace from Reddish Egrets, for now anyways, here is Black Skimmer doing what skimmers do.  Also taken at Bolivar Flats.  I was walking around carrying my 500mm lens mounted on my ground pod when I heard the telltale “bark” of skimmers coming.  Set my groundpod down and pulled off the camera and shot this handheld as two Skimmers went by.

Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II, handheld.

1/6400 sec @ F4, ISO 500, evaluative metering

    Sweet light and silhouette. You can really see the narrow DOF using the 500mm lens in this photo.

  2. Thanks Doug. I was lucky to be able to detach the camera from the ground pod quick enough to get this shot. It’s a little too heavy to try to shoot with the Wimberley head and ground pod attached to it.
