Birthday Black Skimmers
So.... It is my birthday and I love my birthday. I got up early and hit the Swimming River Preserve and was lucky enough to get a bunch of shots of Black Skimmers. These are such beautiful birds! I like the high key effect with these striking black, white and orange birds. I put in a 'regular' version for those who have never seen these. The pairs tend to skim in tandem in perfect synchronization - it is like a ballet! This was like a gift from Mother Nature!
