[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I would like to welcome each and every one of you that view my photographs. There is nothing that I would rather be doing more than taking these for all to enjoy. Thanks for looking and please return....

The Double-crested Cormorant is the most numerous and widespread North American cormorant. It's also the only one that occurs in large numbers inland as well as on the coast. Growing in numbers throughout its range, this cormorant is increasingly being blamed for declines in sport fisheries and for devastating fish farms. Notice the curvature of the subjects beak. This beak is definitely for catching fish and tearing it into smaller pieces.

Hello Travis,
A fine stop action shot of this Cormorant as it's enjoys the water. Nice detail and beautiful coloration. Your camera set up seems to be doing a fine job for you. TFS.
