These are of the same Comorant that I posted yesterday but he's got a different fish this time. This one is a bream and he struggled with it for a good 5 minutes before he finally got it down.

I had never seen a Comorant until the other day when I was trying to capture some pictues of some ducks.....all of a sudden to my suprise a Comorant pops his head up out of the water. Ihad to look twice.I tried to capture him but I did a terrible job.....These pictures are great. Thanks so much for sharing. bentleysmom

Houston, the 20D has found a very comfortable and capable home in your hands, well done on these pics, they really are amazing.

No. 4 really takes the cake....er fish [maybe fish-cake] The exposure and lighting, colours etc are just perfect !!

Do you shoot raw, houston,or are you still in jpeg mode? I personally have found that raw gives one a lot more options in the post processing of the shots, particularlyin the under/over exposurearea. Elements 2 doesn't support raw, but I think version 3 does [ I find thatCanon's software supplied with the 20d is OK, but I personally prefer Adobe's raw processing]

Of course, people like Normuse jpeg and STILL do an out of this world job.

Thanks for this excellent series - Nice catch [for you and the cormorant !!]

I think I have made a mistake in the ID of this bird. I was sure it was a Cormorant until I was looking thru my book and came across the Anhinga. Now I'm positive that this one is a female anhinga. Sorry about that.......

Bentleysmom, thanks so much for your very nice comments. It makes my day when someone enjoys looking at what I have posted.

Jake, the same goes for you also. I appreciate your looking in. Someday I probably will try the raw thing but I'll have to get PS3 first. Right now I have to get myself a sensor cleaning kit and brush. I noticed some dust spots so I used my little 2 gal air compressor with the blow nozzle. I've done this several times before but the last time I did it I got rid of the dust spots but low and behold guess what took there place. Water spots. :lol:.

Regards from "this side"

Bmullen, thanks to you also for looking in.
