[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a shot I took while driving, so couldn't fix the camera per the Sun.
I apologize for the OE parts.

Here, you see two bird species, the Little Black Cormorant, Phalacrocorax niger, and the Intermediate Egret, Mesophoyx intermedia.

I do hope you like this shot.

Thanks for stopping by.

Note: I'd like to thank Ivan for correcting me with the ID of the Little Black Cormorant.

Good interest with the all the different players, and two different species no less :)

Considering taken while driving you've obtained an interesting compo in perspective.

Hello Goldy,
Very nice birds in this photo in a good composition and natural colours.

Hi Goldy,

The subject is well framed. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the little Black Cormorant and the Internediate Egret. The afternoon light has a good effect on the colors even with the OE area. Have a nice day.

Hello Goldy,
A nice group capture consisting of the Little Black Cormorant (Phalacrocorax niger) and the Intermediate Egret. Sulcirostris is the Australian Little Black Cormorant.
Most of the image is in focus with good sharpness in parts against the contrasting water BG.
Thanks and all the best,

Hi Goldy,

How wonderful to find this group of Cormorants and Egrets. One seems to be saying, "Look at that crazy man taking our picture while he is driving." Two are too busy making themselves beautiful to pay any attention to you at all. Very interesting shots and a fun picture to look at.


Lovely moment and capture L'il Bro!
Take care!


You are most fortunate to live in India where wild life abounds. Besides it is nice and hot.
This image is not overly exposed; this is a minor issue.
You have framed it well.
Love the colours.
Greetings from Mario.
