Seven photos of amazing Black Skimmer

A head-on view of a Black Skimmer standing on a beach.

Black Skimmer is the subject of a wonderful article in our August 2016 issue by National Geographic Young Explorer grant recipient Erika Zambello.

Skimmers are found on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts, along the Gulf coast of Mexico and Central America, and across the majority of South America. Photographer Joshua Clark found the skimmer above at Indian Shores, near Clearwater, Florida.
