Excellent set Mike.

Thanks Frank. I'm still trying to learn this birding stuff. Man, it's challenging. :smile:

Wow. Great shots. Thanks for sharing them.

Thanks Mike

mike.... beautiful
how long were you out there to capture these shots?

Thank you Greg! We got there before sunrise, shot for an hour, left for some breakfast, and then came back for another hour or so. The black skimmers were putting on quite the show. These were all with the D300 and 400 f/2.8 AF-S II by the way. Have you ordered yours yet? :biggrin:

Very nice Mike,I sure would love to get me some skimmer images.

Thanks Tim. I have wanted to see these at work for so long but hardly ever see them active, and then yesterday there were 60-70 sitting on a sand bar and 3 or four at a time were active. I burned through 6 gigs of just skimmer shots. Now I'm a skimmer snob and only want to get better angles and better light lol.

Great set. Love No. 3 the most.

Thank you Maji. An opportune osprey fly-by.
