#2, 3, 5, 8 are my favorites. 7 and 9 are a little busy for my taste with so many birds in the frame.

And I'm just the opposite- I love the ones with all the birds in it--so it goes to show each person has their own tastes. But great shots, good job with the panning!-mary

Some very nice photo's
#3 is my pick because the focus appears sharper on the bird than some of the others and #8, the colours are really vivid in this one.
Good work. Greg

No 1,5+6 tell me exactly why they are called Skimmers.
Thanks for sharing these great picrures Rob.

I never knew of such behaviour. Have to admit to not having known about the Skimmer. Fascinating behaviour.
Personally, I really like this one. It has a wonderful abstract feel about it, but that abstraction is created by all these living creatures. I think it is an very good, creative piece of work.

Well done Rob, some very good images depicting typical Skimmer behaviour. Must be great to see them in flocks. If I see a pair on our inland waterways I'm over the moon. Thanks for sharing.

As Clive said...well done Rob. Great captures. Looking at your images I wondered where you saw so many Skimmers together? I photograph in the area of Tampa Bay and rarely see any.

Very nice captures, I like both #5 and #7 for different reasons ofcourse but all are well done. Nice series, wish we had these guys in Washington.

An excellent series of shots. The colour, exposure, activity etc is all very well presented. Well done.
