I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
A while back we had a black skimmer make an appearance in the marsh pond at the end of the day. The late evening setting sun lit the water nicely with layers of color.
Thanks a bunch!
There’s a beach down by Corpus Christi that’s always cordoned off for the skimmers and patrolled pretty closely during the nesting season. I think the colony actually is growing. They’re one of my favorite birds. I love to see them “skimming” across the water.
They are fun and exciting to watch aren’t they?!
Looks like On Golden Pond. Beautiful lighting.
I’m glad you liked the lighting on this shot!
What beautiful lighting on this beautiful bird!
Thank you Molly! I’m happy you enjoyed this photo!
Gorgeous pic, Phil.
Well thanks so much for looking!
You really are at the right moment at the right time with the right camera!!! Wow!!
I occasionally get lucky. Thanks very much!
I enjoy this not just because the action but also the setting – it is more of a wildlife landscape – great stuff
I really appreciate your thoughtful comments Scott!
While at my mom’s, I thought of you. Over her lake a hawk went by…he’d caught something and was carrying it away. We think it may have been a squirrel or something. I was thinking you would’ve been able to capture the awesome power of it all had you been there…then walked inside to enjoy that carrot cake.
That sounds perfect to me! A nice hawk flight photo and then a slice of tasty carrot cake! Cool Good to know you were thinking of me and as always I greatly appreciate you checking out my pics!
Really nice shot
Thanks very much for looking!
This is a highlight.
Glad you enjoyed it.
Love the pic!
I’m happy you liked it!
That’s a fantastic shot!
I appreciate that!
That is wonderful great feeling of texture from the water.
Thanks for the kind words!
What a lovely shot!! Just perfect. Totally sublime…
I’m really you liked this photo and thanks much for your comments FeyGirl!
Oh my ~ the lighting on this is spectacular.
Thank you! Glad you liked this pic and the sun setting did provide the interesting light.
Parece que el agua sea de todo menos agua ¡muy buena!
Me alegra que te guste esta foto! El agua tenía un aspecto muy raro.
