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.
