Little Black Cormorant: My Post

Little Black Cormorant, Phalacrocorax sulcirostris

+===============+

I love working with these birds.

They have that amazing black, that in the right light takes on a silver sheen. The wings and back also have the studded motor cycle leather jacket look, that also changes from rich copper to brillant silver as the breeding season progresses.

 

And just to add to their impressive features, the sparkling emerald eye.

 

Ok, so 25 shots of the same bird was a bit over-enthusiastic, but the elegance came through.
