Black Skimmer  

 

 

"Black Skimmer" by Richard Mittleman, MD

This image was made at the San Joaquin Sanctuary in Irvine, CA. The Black Skimmer is the only bird whose lower bill is longer than the upper. It skims over the water with the longer, lower bill feeling for fish. This image is backlit, which gives it a unique feel.
