So many of these about at the moment.:-)

P.

I rarely saw them at my old place but there does seem to be a fair few about here, they are starting to look for nesting sites in my roof!

I went out into town and there are a couple of bushes that are full of these little beauties, got a few strange looks off the public though.

The cormorant tried for 11' to swallow that big eel, but at the end he didn't make it

Perhaps it's just as well, as I doubt it would have been able to fly if it had! Well caught - the bird as well as you.:-)

Thank you ! The eel was something like 1,5 meters long and when the cormorant thought that he managed to swallow it, it was still protruding from his beak. That bird was EXTREMEY ambitious !!!

WOWEE! heheh
I hope he was O.K., the Cormorant, not so much the eel.
Very cool shot!

You really did good on this!

That is a really nice shot of a bird that a lot of people don't like, but you somehow made it a handsome bird. :)
Very nice!

Just a Pied-billed Grebe that I shot with the Nikon P900, it was maybe 45' away.
