I was watching this Cormorant diving and swimming around looking for a meal. After several dives he did finally surface with a fish for breakfast. These were from a previous trip to the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge In Sanibel Florida. Images taken with a 300mm lens with a 1.4x teleconverter.
I imagine that hooked beak is great for snagging prey. Love the green eye!
Thanks Eliza! They are fun to watch fish! Their eyes are very colorful!
Great series, especially love your first photo, Reed!
Thanks Donna! They are fun to photograph as they are fishing. I was photographing one for 20 minutes when it finally came up with its catch. It looked so proud swimming around with its catch – A colorful leaf! Do a search on my blog homepage for – Cormorant’s Disappointing Meal
You both made a good catch. Really like the first shot.
Thanks Steve! I do enjoy catching photos! I was never into fishing!
