Black tailed skimmer ??

By peter_oak  
Black tailed skimmer.
I think this is a Black tailed skimmer as titled ,if I'm wrong some one will put me right I hope.
If you have the time the large view look's good.
Thank's for all your C/C on my previous upload hope you enjoy this as much.

What an excellent effort - it is really quite breathtaking to view large such perfect detail. I see these guys quite a bit when I am wlaking the dogs I even have my camera with me but so far I think I have managed a blurred back end!
