Late Season Black Skimmer Colony - A Day Outing

Photographed on September 8, 2018

My last visit of the season to the Black Skimmer colony along the coast of southern New Jersey. This time around the juvenile Black Skimmers were all flying and testing out their skimming skills. Many of them practicing over sand which was pretty funny to watch. There were also a good number of juvenile Common Terns which are quite stunning in my opinion. The overcast light wasn’t the best for birds in flight but I stayed for a bit and tried to get some interesting photos. Here are some of my favorites from that day.

Nature photography has become a very passionate hobby of mine and whenever I get a chance I love to get outside and enjoy being outdoors. I am also the co-owner of KGM Expressions, a wedding and portrait photography business, with my wife Kim. This is how we make our living and I love that we get to do that together.
