Default Cormorant in the sun

G'day all

Thought I'd share a recent pic with you - this cormorant was one of a group swimming & feeding in the local estuary. What intreagued me was 'how can webbed feet be comfortable on a chain'?

The bird was sitting on the chain, swinging slightly to & fro as both the breeze moved things & the bird kept looking left then right


exif= Fuji X-s1; 1/250s x f5,6; 350mm [ff equiv]; iso-320

Comments & cc welcome
Regards, Phil

This one looks better than the grey and black ones we have in our area. Excellent details!

I like this shot. nice and sparse leaving your eye to find all the detail on the bird with no distractions.

The chain works well also without being distracting. Good detail in the feathers. The pose is good also. If i had to find one flaw is that id have cropped in a little closer so the birds head would be a little bigger, and also the eye does not look pin sharp, although it is fairly sharp.

A good image all in all.
