[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Black Skimmer (Rynchops niger) at Padre Island National Seashore, Texas. This bird was flying close to the beach.

"Texas offers year-round black skimmer viewing opportunities. Nesting black skimmers can occasionally be observed at Goose Island State Park near Rockport, and along the John F. Kennedy Causeway in Corpus Christi, where a special area has been set aside for them. Such protection is necessary, as widespread coastal development and beach traffic poses serious hazards to black skimmer populations nationwide. Black skimmers are along Laguna Madre at Padre Island National Seashore."

La compression a dû passé par là.....Dommage, car l'image est vraiment superbe. L'originale est-elle plus nette ? Bravo cependant pour la prise de vue.
