Swift Long-Winged Skimmer

There were a lot of these skimmers flying around Capitol Lake (10 August 2018) and I was glad to find this one resting … I love the eyes on this little guy.

Note that I used a 135mm lens on this and then cropped heavily. I really wasn’t as close as this image makes it look I might have been. I don’t think there would have been any way the skimmer would have stayed put if I got so close.

Camera: Nikon D850
Lens: Zeiss Milvus 135mm
ISO 400    1/640 sec   f/13
