The photo was taken late June 2020 at North Lido Beach in Sarasota, Florida. The black skimmers has for years arrived to that beach in the springtime to form a colony and it is wonderful to see them nesting, the hatching of the eggs and how the chicks grow. The shot was taken in the early evening, with the sun a bit lower and me flat on my belly in the sand. This little guy gave his mom a hard time, running away like a toddler and ready to explore the world, he caught my eye and I followed him with my lens.
