Details of a Rainy Weekend at the Beach

When you go to the beach, specially if you are staying during a weekend, you want blue skies and a sunny warm day. You will love to have clear waters and I guess you want to be able to sunbathe a little, go to the water to cool off, maybe read a book and because every is so crispy and perfect you don’t have to worry about grey skies, wind, lightning or packing all your beach things in a few seconds because a mini storm is going to happen anytime while you are there. Right? We don’t want to deal with rain during our beach day, at least that is the way I am.

But few weekends back we had a reservation at a hotel in Belleair Beach and the weather did not cooperate at all for the perfect picture that we all want for a beach day. Instead we had grey skies all weekend and we constantly had to run back to the hotel because of rain and wind. In the short times when the rain stopped I did want I like the best… document and collect moments, beauty in simplicity.

Emerald Cormorant Eye

See Me Closer…

I think I could say that Black Skimmer are one of my favorite birds. I love how elegant they look when they are flying, and how they don’t look elegant at all when they are just standing by. I am fascinated by their black eye that you can’t see unless you are close enough. Their robust beak and skinny legs match in color but not in appearance, it’s cute and unbalanced. In top of all they are hard to photograph, I think that is what keeps me wanting to know more about them, and try again and again to take their picture.

The only way for you to see my eyes is if you get closer.

I am an elegant bird without eyes, if you don’t look closer.
When I fly I look very elegant. My wings have a perfect way to look, like a suit. I am a bird without eyes. At least that is what you can think if you see me flying by you.

My name is Black Skimmer. Can you tell why?

I skim the water to find good yummy stuff to eat.

This photo is not sharp at all. But I love it, because you can see clearly what Black Skimmer does for living.

After I eat, and I get tired I like to hang out with my partner in crime.

We like to fly together and also do nothing together. Do you have a partner like that too?
