Black Skimmer

Black Skimmer, Rynchops niger. Every now and then you see something that just amazes you. Something that you could stare at for hours and not even notice. These Black Skimmers are like that. They are so unusual and yet beautiful in a daring and bold sort of way. They remind me of the planes that scoop water to put out fires as they run their beaks just under the surface looking for the schools of small fish just below. I've only seen these once but oh what a sight.
