Marsh Skimmers

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.

  1. The detail and lighting on these pictures is absolutely stunning, Phil! I particularly loved the last one, where the skimmer appears to kiss its reflection!
