Well... I know I do not vary too much with my subjects, but the thing is I do not have anything but ducks, herons and cormorants in winter outta here :p

So here is another view of one of the dozens of cormorants inhabiting the islands on the Marne river. Anyways, cormorants are always funny to watch while fishing or in their attemps to land in the trees !

Hope you like it !

Hello Pascal, this is a lovely bit of action. There's nothing wrong with the composition and the colours are very nice. I think a faster shutter speed would have helped here but nevertheless it's a great capture. Well done.
