Hitchcockian Birds
Photographer: Rick Weber
Location: Bunche Beach, Fort Myers, FL
I found myself at the end of a sandbar at low tide, well out into the ocean at Bunche Beach, at sunset. I was stunned to see hundreds of black skimmers and seagulls assembling. It was exhilarating, but also a bit creepy, given the fear I felt as a kid when I watched Hitchcock's "The Birds." I haven't seen black skimmers like this ever since. Taken Feb. 13.
