Scaring Fish Out of the Water

This Skimmer was doing such a good job fishing that the fish were jumping out of the water as he was flying around.


Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II mounted on Skimmer ground pod with Wimberley II gimbal head.

1/250 sec @ F8, ISO 400, evaluative metering

  4. Thanks Lyle. I’m spoiled with living near the Gulf of Mexico where these birds hang out. Only the second time in the past 8 years that I’ve been able to get head on shots like this though.

  6. Thanks David. Just wish that that pond was like that year round. I’m assuming that it’s completely gone by now.

  8. Thanks Sheldon. Hope all is well in your end of the world. We need to head out to Bolivar this coming winter. There is a sandbar with your name on it. 🙂
