p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Air to air combat


This pair of black skimmers had a battle over a little tube fish. It took place in the sky over Nickerson Beach, Long Beach Island, New York in Late August.

-1







-2







-3







-4







-5







-6







-7







-8







-9







-10







All: D200 + 80-400 VR @ 400mm, ISO 400, 1/1000, f8, fill flash (SB910 + Better Beamer), crop

The amount of crop varies quite a bit as they were all over the sky as they went at it. Tomorrow Iíll post another battle with a totally different look.

Comments and suggestions welcome,

Morris

Good sequence Morris. But I don't see a fish to fight over.

Thank you Ken,

The fish was dropped before I started taking photos.
