while at the park this afternoon chewin' the fat with a couple of acquaintances, a double-crested cormorant came into the lagoon. at first some distance away, he gradually came closer until he was within about 30 feet of where we were standing. the light was pretty poor, but i managed these fairly decent shots... 40D, 400mm, 1/640 @ f/6.3...

I think these arequite good.The soft background helpsto bringthe detail into play. I like the way the water beads up on its back in the first pic. Well done, Rocky. Dan
