Adult Black Skimmer in flightAdult Black Skimmer in flight – Nikon D200, handheld, f5.6, 1/750, ISO 200, Nikkor 80-400mm VR at 240mm, natural light

Sorry for this being just a single image but I’m tired from writing a very long post I published yesterday on Image Thieves – Copyright Violations. I took this photo in Florida in 2008 as the adult Black Skimmer flew by whilst giving me “the eye”. Isn’t the color of the Gulf of Mexico behind the bird simply delicious?
