Black Skimmers

I can say now I know what Black Skimmers look like. I’m not sure I had ever seen them. Now I have seen hundreds, at the same time.

I did not change my lens when I found them so I missed out on a decent wide shot. At one point there were hundreds in a line sitting on the waters edge.

Sand and wind don’t mix with camera’s so I guess it was best I kept the same lens on. I learned that the hard way.

  1. Hi Ted,
    Love this last photo! The red on the beaks is so striking, makes for a beautiful photo of these big grey and white birds!
    Have a great weekend,
    Laura
