[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Last week I was in New South Wales's capital city Sydney in connection with a training workshop arranged by Higher Education Commission, Islamabad, Pakistan. It was a novel experience and being in Sydney seemed more like a dream than reality. It is a wonderful city with breathtaking panoramic views. We were going to Sydney's famous Taronga Zoo and on the way to wharf 2 for a taking a ferry to the said zoo, I captured this cormorant basking under the harsh Sydney sun, close to where a stream of people was going to catch ferry.Finding this opportunity, I shot the bird.

The little black cormorant (Phalacrocorax sulcirostris) is a member of the cormorant family of seabirds. It is common in smaller rivers and lakes throughout most areas of Australia and northern New Zealand, where it is known as the little black shag. It is around sixty centimetres long, and is all black with blue-green eyes.

Hello Abid,
What a beautiful image of this fine looking Cormorant, it looks like a statue made of pewter. The exposure is excellent, allowing us to see it's unusual looking feather color in exceptional detail. The gorgeous bluish green eyes of this bird immediately captures your attention. Lovely shot!!
