Black skimmers

In addition to the roseate spoonbills that I posted previously, one of the other bird species that I had most wanted to photograph on my trip to Florida was black skimmers. I'm fascinated by these beautiful and interesting birds, and I had seen them only a few times in northern California (and always at quite a distance). It was really cool to be able to approach them on the beach (well, more accurately on a sand bar out on the tidal flats), and to see such a large flock of them in the morning light.
