Composed Cormorant.


The Cormorant  Phalacrocorax carbo











  


There are three large lakes in the park near where we live, and on an outing last year I saw this fabulous Cormorant calmly surveying the water in one of the lakes, and later taking a swim in another. It was the first time I had actually seen one in the wild, and it was a real treat.

You found some fine feather detail on the Cormorant. Not easy with such a dark plumaged bird.

A very nice series.

Those views could have been taken on my local patch pond where they are fairly regular visitors.

The Cormorant is a cool bird. It's related to Pelicans and often will hang out with them. Nicely done my friend!
