I stumbled onto this picture with some help from a Coot. I was watching the Coot fly across the road into an irrigation canal when I spotted the Cormorant swimming with a Perch in his mouth. Just as I snapped the photo he decided the Perch needed a little tenderizing. Sorry for the blood, I didn't have any control.

Now this is one spectacular example of how still photography excels, in capturing a brief instant in time, but when a special moment or a unique moment is captured it is all the more magnetic, guts and all.

Great job!

Thanks Norm, I consider you one of the gurus of the still capture especially the flight capture. I did get one other shot as this Cormorant and another flew away. The Perch was still firmly in it's beak. If I can clean it up enough for posting I will.

All the best,

Thanks, I was pretty excited when I saw what I had. I did even know it was a Double Crested until I got home. It was only there for about 10 seconds.
