The Sky Skimmer ~ Endangered Black Skimmer

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky. ~Rabindranath Tagore

 

This endangered Black Skimmer appears to be slicing through the clouds rather than water. The entire frame is water reflected sky and clouds at dawn.
