Black Skimmers

On the Bolivar Flats near Galveston, Texas, Simon Tan watched as black skimmers cut through the water to feed during a low tide. At one point, these three birds flew in formation. The Texas photographer says, “I was lucky to get a few shots.” He used a Canon EOS 40D and a 100-400mm lens
