I tried to capture several shots of these birds (Black Skimmers) last winter on a stormy day at the beach. They would move in unison a few feet down the sand about every minute or two, only flying for a short distance. Sometimes they would take off, head towards the water, then drift back on the thermals to land in nearly the same location before flight. They were fun to watch, but difficult to capture. I thought this photo was a good choice for this challenge as it captures their movements. Although there were several that were in focus, the unfocused one — the accidental, unintended capture — is the one that I think captures their movements best.
Here is a better overall shot, but more in-focus, than the above:
