Just a few incredible photos of african skimmers (Rynchops flavirostris) in action.

If it hasn’t dawned on you yet, the name of these birds comes from thier preferred method of hunting.

They like to group up and glide just above the water, getting close enough to dip their lower mandible just below the surface.

As soon as prey is detected, the skimmer snaps its mouth shut and breaks away from the water to eat.
