How is Necip? Please say hi for me next time you are in touch with him. No surprise that you did so well with his lens. A beautiful portrait of this Cormorant with the gorgeous turquoise eye. Colors and details of the eye, beak, and wet feathers are wonderful. I love the composition.

Nice portrait shot Joe, it's a great POV & well composed.
I especially like the wake at the base of the birds neck, it adds nicely :)

Great green eye ;-) Good contrast, nice composition, perfect sharpness. I am wondering about very little higlights reduction here (white fethers on head)

A nice photo that reminds both you and us of that great day out with Necip.
Such photos, very high value, have been a common in his gallery here and are now part of yours...you've learned a few tricks from him and progressed a lot, too! My compliments!
Very nice details, gorgeous light on the head of the cormorant and lovely colors everywhere.
Perhaps i would have cropped out the bottom part to leave only the neck and head with only smooth water behind...but that a subjective thing :)
Anyway, great work, mate!
Bravo and TFS
PS: By the way, is Necip still interested in joining us in Poland?

Una buena captura Joe, sobre todo por la dificultad de acercarse a estas aves. Los colores son muy fieles a la realidad y toda la parte de la cabeza está muy bien captada.
Aquí ya tenemos en el rio varias colonias de estas aves que por cierto hacen bastante daño a la fauna autóctona.
Un saludo: Josep Ignasi.

this is one splendid close-up
I wish you come in the lake Kerkini in Greece(a splendid water biotope with thousands cormorants carbo and pygmeus)
