I took that one a couple of years ago on Nickerson Beach in NY. We don't have Skimmers here in Spain and bird life in general in Europe is quite a fraction of the diversity and quantity of the USA, which is very sad.
My place almost dried up with brids. reaching 45 degree C temp right now.. will go max 50 hard to bird.

After getting home, I realize two of the better pics are basically the same shot but in different locations. ;)

A question for you BIF shooters. How do you set your exposure metering, or do you manually select an ISO? I'm trying to set my custom dial to BIF mode, and I wasn't sure if Auto ISO was the way to go or not. I usually don't use auto, but I thought it might be more necessary for moving subjects.

Exposure vary upon many situation in my experience. Most of the time I do use manual mode only and gauge the shooting situation. If its up in sky you may want to crank the EV manually to expose the bird properly as in my experience metering is wonky in the Olympus in this situation and believe me you would not want to use spot metering.

More over I mostly set my iso auto and fix my aperture and shutter ... my auto iso for bif is in range of 200-4000 so i dont have to change frequently. and also I use another feature next in the AUTOISO set menu is Lowest S/S setting and i keep it 1600.

I have posted my BIF guide link in one of my recently featured post. May be should post here for those who want to check it out.

I usually have my cameras set to auto iso, I've forgot to reset it too many times. I also tend to lower EC to -1/3ev or -2/3 to help preserve highlights when shooting towards a bright sky, then lift shadows in post. It's not the best for noise levels, but I'd prefer a little noise to blown highlights. Metering is usually set to ESP.
