That's a lovely shot, so I hope you won't be offended by this.

To me, the bird looks like it was cut out and pasted onto a photo of blurred foliage. Maybe that's just what happens when you nail the sharpness and the background is really diffuse? Or is it your preferred processing style?

Or is it me ...

Thanks Richard,

Apparently - as I googled and found out for it did not know either until today - the male has the pink eye ring whereas the female has a grey eye ring and also a white upper bill, larger yellow cheek patches and balck marks in the yellow tail panels.

Cheers Graham

Thanks Graham
I noticed the pink eye ring but wondered if yours were different to ours.
I'll keep my eyes open.

Double-crested Cormorant. (Given a cool tone in LR because the light was pretty crappy.)
