Black Skimmer - with killie minnow
1/1600 is really slow for flight work (I prefer 1/3200), but I couldn't let this beautiful golden light so unused. The wings would ideally be a bit higher, but the sun was so low it lit the underside of the bird perfectly. I took this shot from my knees to keep help minimize shadows and maximize background blur.
