"Beach Party"

Black Skimmers at Town Beach, Cape May, NJ

Massive flocks of these birds congregate on the Cape May beaches. They are especially impressive in their unison flight, alternately shifting view from the black top-wing to the white under-wing, always with the red-orange bill standing out. This group had just taken wing upon arrival  of a small dog. (Yes there are a few terns in the group.) 

Available in all sizes up to 18x24.
Edition limit is 30 prints 8x10 and larger.
