16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sky through the wings

A Ruddy Marsh Skimmer (Sub-Adult Male) in it's natural habitat. A brilliant sunny day of our beautiful world is visible through the transparent wings of the small skimmer. It took enormous time and attempts to take the final shot as the skimmers are very sensitive while approach close to them.
