Cormorants are interesting birds to photograph. They fish underwater and then “pop-up” when they catch a fish. But it is amazing how they can swallow the fish whole. Sometimes it takes quite a while for them to finally get it down! I have also seen them catch a leaf underwater and then look surprised at their catch when they surface. They also have a very interesting eye color! The color of their iris has variously been described as blue-green, turquoise or aquamarine but whatever word you use the color is unique. The Featured Image was taken at the J.N. Ding Darling NWR in Sanibel, Florida with a 400mm Canon DO lens on a Canon 7D.
Those turquoise eyes are amazing!
Yes, their eyes have a very distinctive bluish color
Intriguing birds. Good thing it has that fish pointing in the right direction. Those eyes are uniquely colored.
Yes, they are interesting to watch fishing! And their eye color is a very cool bluish green! Gives them a distinct color!
Great shot with the fish and that gorgeous eye!
Thanks Donna! They are fun to watch fishing! It is amazing what they can swallow!
Always admired their beautiful eyes… not to mention their ability to down incredibly large fish!
Yes! I agree! It is amazing how large a fish they can eat!
