An intimate capture of the exact moment this Skimmer transfers its prey to its chick

Photographers Comment

My name is Alan Gambrell and I live in Plant City, Florida. This image was made at Indian Shores on the west coast of Florida using a Canon 90D with a Sigma 150-600 Contemporary lens. A Black Skimmer colony was nesting at that location so we timed it to be there during sunset when the feeding started. It was a wonderful experience watching the interaction between the parents and chicks. Initial processing was completed in Canon DPP and then touched up in Luminar 4.
