Panasonic Lumix FZ5 ISO 100 Aperture-Priority Mode

I was only a few inches from this bird.

Great shots, especially the first. How on earth did you get a few inches from a cormorant? Were you wearing feathers? However you did it, you did it, and all congrats to you on that effort.

Wonderful shots! Wish I could get one close enough so that you could even
tell that it was a cormorant. I've seen them perched on logs or swimming
on lakes nearby, but were way to far out for a decent photo.

Thanks everyone! There are a few local wildlife refuges I frequent here in Southern Florida and the birds are very used to seeing people on a regular basis. The cormorants and anhingas will literally let you get to petting distance.
