Being Cute is Hard Work: Got this while visiting the Black Skimmer colony on Indian Rocks Beach near Clearwater, FL. It has been very hot and the chicks dig out a little impression in the sand to lie in and stay cool. This particular one was lying next to an egg. I am not sure if it was hatched or not. Taken with a Nikon D500, 300mm f4 lens with the 1.4 tc.
