As promised earlier this week, here are some additional photos from when the black skimmer visited the marsh. Lit by evening setting sunlight, the skimmer put on an excellent show as it rapidly zipped along the salt marsh. Skimmers are really amazing birds and I am always excited to watch and photograph them as they ‘work’ the area skimming the water for fish.
Fantastic pics, absolutely stunning.
Thanks very much I appreciate it.
WOW Phil, absolutely stunning images.

How cool! I especially like the rippling water effect photos. The beak also reminds me of the birds of paradise flowers and explains how they got their name. Well done!
