Pic of the Day

Black Skimmer, Rynchops niger: Indian Beach, Florida
    I am still going through images I shot in July, while visiting the Black Skimmer colony at Indian Beach.  I found this one to be quite humorous.  I'm not sure why the skimmer claps its bill with its right foot, but it does make for an interesting image.  Maybe the skimmer was cleaning something off the lower mandible, or maybe it was just clumsy and tripping over its foot.

Nikon D800, Nikkor 500mm f/4, 1/2500 second @ f/6.3
