Black Skimmers in flight

Black Skimmers in FlightBlack Skimmers in Flight – Nikon D200, handheld, f6.3, 1/640, ISO 200, Nikkor 80-400mm VR at 400mm, natural light

Just a quick post this morning of an image of a pair of Black Skimmers in flight over the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. I photographed these Black Skimmers at the north beach of Fort De Soto County Park in Florida one cool January morning. Black Skimmers are North America’s only skimmer species.

    They’re in my top 10 I hope to see next year so it’s lovely to see them in flight.

    I always enjoy your birds in flight photos. 50-years ago today I heard some sad news in the University of Utah bookstore about our president — not only did he die but I see looking back today, a revolution gradually unfolded as the Sixties began. A very different world now, mostly for the better. Rest in peace JFK and Jackie too.
