    He's beautiful! All I ever see are blue and green ones.

    Wow, that is amazing. I had never seen a pink one either so you prompted me to google it. The species common name is roseate skimmer. apparently they are common but I have never ever seen one. You captured a male and wow what a great photo. Here is a link that tells about them
