The Splash

This Skimmer was hunting for its prey and ended up splashing water up over his head which was an added bonus on this shot.

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

1/400 sec @ F7.1, ISO 400, evaluative metering, no flash, 500mm

  2. He missed the fish but got plenty of the water wash. Neat shot.

  3. Thanks Lyle. I didn’t realize that he had splashed like that until I looked at it on my computer.

  4. Thanks David. Just wish that the action was still going on at the pond. Only a handful of birds there last Saturday. I’m guessing that they fished out the pond before it filled up again.
