Cool two shot series, Paul. It kind of looks like he came in fast, and left the same way.
Nice shots.

Striking close-up shot of the cormorant, Theresa. The sharpness and color are super.

What duck is that? Seen in Biberach an der Riß, southern Germany
He has some sort of tuft on his head.

Hi Shalu...

Thanks for the kind comment on my photography. Without sounding too much like a fanboy, I've always admired your work for its variety, technical skill and artistic merit. Viewing your posts every day provides me with something to aspire to.

Tom

Thank you so much, Tom. Appreciate your compliments.

Thanks so much, Shalu. I appreciate your kind words.

You've gotta try moving in closer on shots like these, Shalu. :-P :p;-)a LOL
Very nicely done. What a sharp image!!

Thank you very much, Mike! I did not move, the bird flew to me :lol::-P

Completely mind blowing, Shalu. How in the world can you handhold that much magnification? The sharpness and detail you are getting is just crazy. Are you planning to buy Sony's new 600 mm lens?
