Black Skimmers

A very large group of Black Skimmers were sitting on a sand bar along the Galveston, Texas, ship channel. I walked about 1/2 mile along the beach to get within shooting distance. When I got a little too close, they all flew up and around. Panning with their movement, I managed to get them in focus.

Location: Galveston, Texas, USA
