African Skimmers

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by David Fettes

Three African Skimmers were flying back and forth low over the Zambezi River in the evening sun. Standing on the bank of the river I tracked them and caught them against the sun's reflection in the water, giving a perfect silhouette of their distinctive shape. 500mm lens with a 1.4X converter, hand held, no tripod.

Location: Mana Pools National Park Zimbabwe
