Black skimmer chick, Indian Shores, Florida

Marina Scarr photographed this black skimmer chick at the water’s edge in Indian Shores, Florida, and thought it was drinking at first. "I recently learned that the chicks begin skimming sand and water soon after birth," the Florida resident says. Scarr used a Canon EOS-1D Mark III and a 300mm lens with a 1.4x teleconverter.
