Awesome Adaptation--Black Skimmer Beak

A native water bird of Florida (my home state)...and most of North and South America.  Enjoy and admire the beauty not forgetting to imagine in your mind the slow, incremental steps that would have had to have led up to this point--first longer, then thinner, then 'experimentation' in dipping while flying, then all out specialization.
