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 was at the Celery Farm this morning and a Cormorant was working the area for a meal. He kept diving and then coming up with nothing. He was fairly far out when he dove down to try again. Right after he dove a Gull landed nearby. When he surfaced with a large fish, it was right under the Gull. The startled Cormorant dropped his fish and then went after the gull. It happened so quickly I did not get a sharp shot. Then both went on their separate ways. The cormorant came closer as he was diving and fishing. Closeup, he surfaced with his new meal. Unfortunately it was a leaf.
