[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another capture from the bay of Guaratuba, where there are some talha-mares living. The Black Skimmer, (Rynchops niger), is a tern-like seabird, one of three very similar bird species in the skimmer family. Its brazilian name "talha-mares" comes from the way it cuts the sea while feeding.

Oi Zeca
que turminha bem colorida e interessante...
Só não consigo encontrar os olhos dos passáros.. :)
gostei da captura e seu posicionamento para a foto...



Ola Zeca,
Bonita captura,otima composicao.

Olá Zeca

Que beleza exótica destas aves...fiquei encantada com o detalhe do "bico" longo e de duas cores contrastantes que de longe já devem chamar a atenção. Ótimo trabalho Zeca, meus parabéns!
