Love the first photo. On looking at it again, I would maybe get rid of the three closely grouped birds on the end of the lower limb that produces the spot in the reflection (the very middle of the photo). Maybe it draws your attention to the middle of the frame, but it detracted away from the rest of the shot for me.

Yes, that is a cormorant, very common down here in Florida.

Thanks for your comments. I agree after removing the one furthest one out using the Content Aware Fill tool in CS6. I tried first with the clone tool but the colors/tones in the area made blending it in harder than I tought it's be. Content Aware Fill makes life easy

Looks great, except, you also need to remove them from the tree that isn't the reflection, haha. Reminds me of this famous incident from last year:

Wow, can't believe they missed that reflection.

So much for the thought of shuning the material world
