My fantastically talented husband shot all these pictures last weekend, and they are far better than any I could have taken myself! In fact, I now realize that Double-crested Cormorants are actually exquisitely beautiful birds. I think I'm in love again!
The Cormorant slices through the water with barely a ripple,
swimming smoothly along,
and then diving down for its prey.
They stay underwater for a long time, and cover a lot of distance underwater. You never know where they'll turn up! Tom managed to catch this one just as he surfaced. Pretty cool sequence, right?
