Resting Black Skimmers ~ This flock of Black Skimmers was on the beach at Crown Point in San Diego. This photograph shows only a small number of the entire flock. I've never been able to get this close to skimmers before. I liked the pattern they made with their repetitive positioning and their little black tuxedos.
Black Skimmers in Flight ~ This flock of skimmers were flushed from the beach by someone passing by. They soon returned to loafing on the beach.
Western Gull ~ This photograph was taken in La Jolla Cove, in the San Diego area. He was on the cliff side above the ocean.
