[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photograph is the one having taken it in the park that exists in the boundary of Tokyo and Saitama Prefecture. The great cormorant often sees in the park recently. Limbs and the wing are covered blacking it. Judging from the seen side, it is not a graceful bird at all. It dives in water, and it stops in the tree, and the wing is extended like this and it sunbathes if it observes it well. It is a bird that does a mysterious action when operation is seen though the body is big.

Master composition. The bird is captured in an attitude really dramatic. The small rock, the distribution of herbs on it, and the green water that surrounds it, I like a zen garden ...
