Flying Fisherman with longer lower mandible showing off his catch.

Observed this visitor to Trinidad & Tobago arriving with a group of terns. He immediately began to skim the waters around Orange Field Mudflats which was at high tide. A few skims later he came up trumps with this fish. Had to keep panning left-right-left to catch up with him! Black Skimmers are usually here during March to October but some stay around.
