this cormoront was standing next to a lake not 100ft from houses. It allowed me to come within about 10 ft without being bothered.

Haha... Tom. I see you made the acquaintance of one of our resident cormorants. Excellent exposure. I like the range of values on the black plumage. Very sharp too. I always have trouble with my balance as I try to kneel on the grass without getting goose poop on me. : P
Excellent capture.
TFS. : )
P.S. I saw some baby coots and some baby grebes these last few days.

Hi Tom,
Nice portrait and good lighting on the Cormoronts plumage. I like the pov and the sharpness of the head.
Good shot,

Magnifique cormoran que l'on distingue bien à so bec en crochet, beaux détails.
