The male Roseate Skimmer has a pink body and appendages.
In this image it's a little easier to see that the tops of the wings are tinted pink.
The front half of the male is a purplish pink.
The eyes on the male are a dark purple.
I believe this is a juvenile male who has yet to attain his adult rosy hue.
A female Roseate Skimmer.
A front view of that same female Roseate Skimmer. Her pterostigma (front sections of the wings) are the same tan color as her body.
Female Roseate Skimmer's have a white stripe on their back.
