Skimmers, and photographers, work very hard for such a small reward. This one finally caught a tiny little fish.
Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II lens mounted on Skimmer ground pod with Wimberley II gimbal head
1/640 sec @ F5.6, ISO 400, evaluative metering, -2/3 exposure compensation
Wonderful shot. That seems like such a small reward for all that work.

I can not get enough of the skimmers. They are fun to shoot. Good catch on the catch!

Thanks Pat. Had lots of fun over a 3 week period this summer at Bryan Beach. Can’t wait for next year.

Thanks David. Wish that I could have spent more time at the pond this year. I had a blast there.

Thanks Greg. My favorite position for shorebird photography is getting down low with my ground pod.
