Black Skimmers
4

These were taken late afternoon back in August at Nickerson Beach, Long Island, NY. The skimmers had blasted off and were circling in there defensive positions.

1) Circling

2) Landing on the beach

Comments and suggestions welcome,

Morris

Nice set, Morris. When you shoot at a flock like that do you try focusing on any one of them in particular or do you just let the camera pick one out and shoot?

Thank you Red,

I try for the birds closest to me.  I use Fuji's Zone AF rather than subject/eye detection so I can get an average of the closer birds in the frame.  Nikon has Closest Subject, I'm not shore about Canon.
