Some close ups of the osprey on the top right corner of the first image. This is in Lovers Key State Park, I was looking for dry trees to photograph. These particular trees have been affected by erosion, the are dry and bleached by the sun. Eventually they will become drift wood. Both stages of the tree, dry, bleached but attached to the sand still and the driftwood that it will become later once the waves will detach the tree from the sand are beautiful natural art made by nature.

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.

My name is Black Skimmer

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?
