Black Skimmer (Fits 10x20 only)
Black Skimmer (Rynchops niger)~ Pinellas County, Florida
I was watching a lone skimmer work the lagoon at Fort De Soto's North Beach when it turned and 'skimmed' in my direction.
They are so graceful and quiet when they are hunting that I can only hear the faint sound of the water being probed by its beak as it passed by.
