    Cool shots Ben. Where were these taken??
     
  4. Bolsa Chica Ben? I think I recognize that bird :!: :!: :!:

    We saw 3 of them flying "in formation" and skimming on our vacation and it was quite fun shooting them from the boardwalk.
     
  5. I have always wondered what would happen if a skimmer hit a submerged log or rock. Really nice images of an amazing bird.
     
  6. Great shots but I think the second is amazing. Nice work!

    Wow Ben - that #2 is amazing! This is quickly becoming my favorite bird! And I just learned of it's existance last March! Thanks for the closer look!
     
  9. Ben, your goal has been the Osprey which I seem to find in abundance. My goal is the Skimmer and here you are posting a bunch of shots!!!! :evil: :evil: :wink:

    Maybe we should get together for a shoot and we'd both be happy!! :D

    Great shots, all of them!!

    Hi Frank
    Good A good looking Avatar there !!
    Most of these were taken at San Jaoquin Wildlife Center, in Irvine Calif.
    Ran into about 25 or so just hanging out at one of the ponds!!
