This Cormorant in Wakodahatchee Wetlands felt this group of Bird Brains needed some Direction and Guidance.

LOL! I guess the birders weren't interested in such a common bird. Too bad, your pictures are hilarious!

Those Cormorants are always posing wings open for all to see, They seem to be saying don't shoot that GBH how about me.

How funny! Some great stories in these wonderful photos.

Our cormorants are extremely shy...

Hi Ed,

Great Capture!! The pose and and apparent expression are perfect for the caption. Somehow the creatures around us seem to have a keener sense of irony than we usually can muster.
