This photo isn't the best quality due to the high bright sun and very windy conditions, as well as the great distance I was from the Cormorant, but I thought I'd share this anyway. This Cormorant came up in between the choppy surface of Lake Griffin, Florida with a bigger fish than he could handle. I watched him struggle with this fish for several minutes before he finally lost it. He immediately dove after it, but did not come back up with his prize. I kind of felt sorry for him.

41 views and no comments? I thought someone might appreciate the story with the pic. What matters is that I really enjoyed watching and photographing him. :D
