Black Skimmer - Martha's Vineyard
Had to dodge security guards ( yes, security guards on the BEACH !) and hike to a remote spot were this cool bird flew back and forth practically begging to have its picture taken.

Awesome shots. I especially like the second Hummingbird and the Least Bell's Vireo. Nicely done Sir!

Revup, islander, serendipity, excellent pictures! Can't wait for the rains to abate. The only birds that I see these days are crows and pigeons :(

Oh we'll, all in good time. Come October/November, the migratory birds will come down to our lattitudes :)

Here's a few of mine from today. My Heron friends showed up hungry, so I helped them to a small fish dinner. 7D, 100-400mmL @ 400mm, f/7.1, 1/320-1/500s, handheld.

"Where's the fish!"

This juvenile heron late arrival lost out. "No fish for you!" The early bird gets the fish. :)

Also, a common waxbill and a Brazilian cardinal.

7D, 100-400mmL @ 400mm, f/7.1, 1/320-1/500s, handheld.
