Caught this guy sun bathing after feeding on some trout.

Re: Sun bathing

Lovely shot. You've caught the patterns and irridescence in the wing feathers very well. It's very easy to regard cormorants as just "black birds" but seen in the right light they are really very beautiful.
Thanks for sharing.

Regards

Re: Sun bathing

Have to agree with Peter, you have captured the shades superbly. Great feather detail!

Re: Sun bathing

Thanks very much for the comments. The background is a bit washed out due to very bright sunshine on the concrete walkway in the background if I exposed for it the detail on the bird would have been lost (I do not know enough PP to sort it out afterwards) and had not much time to get any more shots.

Re: Sun bathing

I dont think the background detracts from the picture, it is clutter free and adds to the detail on the main subject. (If that makes sense)

Re: Sun bathing

I went that way also if I darkened it down the sheen on the wings was lost. Thanks again.

Re: Sun bathing

A complete contrast was the phrase I was looking for!
