Skimmers – Banking Turns

You always want to capture Skimmers skimming along the water.  After all, that’s why they are called skimmers.  However, there is something else I like to see them do.  Banking into their turns.  At the end of their skimming run they lift and go into a banking turn lining up for a return run.  The turn can be graceful or hard and sharp.  Some what like a jet fighter pulling G-forces in the turn.  That’s just another reason why I like shooting them.  They can offer a full show.

    Sweet shots David. Glad that you had a good time and were able to get some Skimmer shots at Bryan beach. Just wish that the pond wasn’t going to be gone soon.
