The photographer: David Schmitz of North Natomas
Behind the lens: This photo is from a recent trip we made to Akumal, Mexico. While snorkeling in Yal-Ku Lagoon, I raised up to find this bird. We stayed in a condo on the beach at Half Moon Bay and also made a short trip to Tuluum to visit the Mayan ruins.
