PHALACROCORAX carbo sinensis

Hope I'm right with my ID
This seems to be the European continental form of Cormorant. To find out about the right species of Cormorant seems to an amateur almost impossible (about 40 different species). The plumage-color depends of the state of maturation of the bird.
I had seen this bird last year during my trip to Florence.

Hello Anne,
Impressive capture with excellent colors.
It is a interesting image take from close range with such wonderful clarity. The details and colors are great.
Thanks for sharing!

Helil Anne,
This is absolutely stunning! The waves and ripples, the colours and shapes and the quality are all just magical. Exposure is perfect too. If this were mine it would definitely have been up on the wall. What a beauty. Well done and best wishes.

Hello Anne,
Very beautiful photo in splendid clear colours and great sharpness. Excellent composition.

Hello Anne,
interesting capture for this cormorant, nice composition, great details with the success of natural colors, congratulations.

Good evening

very very artistic capture Anne! I love the colors here .. can clearly see some the folded forms of the buildings reflections in the water...and the star of the show is of course this beautiful Cormorant who is trying desperately to escape from some intruders ;) The composition is ....rather controversial but that can be only a good think in this piece of art !

Beauty, more than the species I liked the reflection on the water, it looks like a wall paper of nature, well captured. tfs.
