Was treated to the sight of a black skimmer. Had never seen one before and I guess it's a bit out of range. Everyone that spotted it had a collective 'what is that? have you seen a bird like that before?' Many cell phones and cameras came out, must have made this bird feel famous. Was a nice surprise to be heading out for the mundane and get this kind of present.
Too bad I didn't have a super nice 'real' camera. It never turned around to show it's nice white chest. The only view I got of the front was about 50 yards or so away and my max zoom made it fairly pixilated. So not a great quality shot to post. But hey, happy I got pictures
