this is a fine looking capture of the pygmy cormorant with a good point of view.It is a shame that such a wonderful if somewhat plain looking bird has to put up with our abuses what with you have said in your note.A photo with good focus and details and true colours.Thanks for sharing it with us.

He looks so sad this cormoran, he seems to express what you wrote in your notes!
Good light and good details!
Hello Tasos. Perfectly perched bird on this timber pole. Excellent sharpness and clarity against the pleasant background of the sea. Well done and best regards. Jusni
At first I thought that it was a juvenile bird but by reading your notes, I realize that it is a specie that I have never seen before. This is an excellent capture with good composition, exposure, details and agreeable tones of colors. Your notes are also interesting. Thanks,
