This was a pair on the dead tree stump at the bird hide outside Skukuza in the park. There was a hippo close by and it seemed like this pair was discussing him!

Superb Pic of these 2 White Breasted Cormorants. I like the composition, getting both in the frame. Good POV, and sharpness. Well Done all round! Sheriff

Nice capture!!Its good to see the pic in some action,you captured them both very well.POV&DOF perfect!TFS!

Well captured, and amusing!

Hi Tim,
a wonderful pair. The white on the breasts and necks are a bit OE, but B/W birds are not easy to get right, so I think you manage well with the exposure. Well composed, good POV and nice colours.
Very well done.

Very beautiful episode from nature. Nice composition. Excellent sharpness and DOF.

Nice shot of this pair Tim and well composed. Very good sharpness, detail, DOF and colors. Great OOF BG. You've managed the exposure well with this difficult B&W combo. (just a bit OE) Well done.
Thank You!

Hi Tim, nice composition, maybe a bit soft. But the timing is perfect, right on the action.

What a delightful pair these two appear to be.

Excellent details, colors, POV and I especially like the interaction between them that you were able to capture.

A little OE, but otherwise a perfectly wonderful image.

Funny title, made me chuckle... ;-)

Great job, thank you Tim!

Hi Tim,
The composition and framing of this pair is excellent. Difficult bright exposure, but you handled it well. Nice saturated colors. Detail looks good. You caught a great pose as they do appear o be chatting about something.
