Another great shot of these Spotted Shags but now there's two more!
I love the poses because obviously they are all staring intently at something... it adds interest to the photo.
Excellent BG once again and a perfect DOF that doesn't blur it too much :)
Natural lighting and colours.
Well done mate,
Fine capture of the spotted cormorants enjoying the sun perching on a rock. Sharpness, details and exposure are perfect. Good POV and I liked the way you have captured the moment with all three of them looking intently on something .I can see a greenish lore on two of them , is it part of their breeding plumage? thanks for the picture and also for the notes.
I was going to write something funny but I'm too tired and sleepy :-) So...erm, very nice trio. Two headed beast meets one headed shag. Or someting :-) Niceeeeeee!
By the way - do you know BBC's The Fast Show?

This are tree Spotted Shags. Tomorrow 6 (((---: I think they see something in the water. A tasty fish? The one the right is that a youngster. He misses the green color on the beak. Fine capture of the spotted cormorants. Sharp as usual. Regards and TFS BOB

Splendid shot again of these Spotted Shags enjoying the sunlight. Great expressions on thier eyes and the rippled blue waters acts as a fabulous BG and illustrates the location very well. The distinct difference in colour on their plumage is very educational. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

I alwasy find that birds like this and their ilk are often gangly and awkward looking yet have some of the most impressive eyes in the bird world.I guess each of us has to have something going for us.
The shot is well composed,and they always give me the impression they are sun worshippers or waiting for the mothership or something.
The lighting is well done and the colours are nicely saturated.
The POV and DOF are both well handled.

Very nice, Steve. It's good to be able to compare the two adult birds in their breeding plumage to the juvenile - and doesn't the breeding plumage look very striking.
I like the three birds in the one shot, odd numbers always work well for composition, the rock is well-placed within the frame and the water is a good background which allows the birds to stand out in the image.
