[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Black Skimmer, Rynchops niger, is a tern-like seabird, one of three very similar bird species in the skimmer family. Its brazilian name "talha-mares" comes exactly from the way it cuts the sea while feeding. It breeds in North and South America. Northern populations winter in the warmer waters of the Caribbean and the tropical and subtropical Pacific coasts, but the South American races make only shorter movements in response to annual floods which extend their feeding areas in the river shallows.

Hello Jose Augusto,
Beautiful photo of these Black Skimmers with a great black and white composition. Lovely colours and good sharpness.

This is a fun photo showing all phases of the landing process. The red bills and legs are so effective in the otherwise neutral toned image.

Olá Zeca

Bonito registro destas lindas aves de cores bem fortes e contrastantes. São fantásticos os detalhes vermelhos dos pés e parte do bico.
Ótimo momento bem capturado, parabéns.

This is an excellent photo - well composed and full of life. Congratulations.

Ola Zeca,
Belo album,vejo que voce aqui tambem tem dificuldades.
