Man, these guys are hard to get. I have been trying all summer tophotograph thembut they always kept themselves out of reach of my Bigma. Today, I found a pair fishing close enough that I could fill the frame. Even so, they were rather difficult to photograph, as they only remained on the surface for a few brief seconds before another dive. It quickly degenerated into a guessing game to try and figure out where they would pop up lol.

nice pics, though they all seem to have a pretty strong greenish cast to them... the cormorants here are a bit more cooperative, especially in spring, when they oftencome within 30-40 feet of where i stand, and let me get some pretty nice closeups even with "only" a Sigma 80-400.

Yes. It was a mid size duck pond. When the sun came out, the water literally was that colour. It isn't somewhere I would want to swim lol.

Beautiful job on all of these, they are very timid birds and you did an excellent job of capturing various head attitudes.
