Doskonale to ptaszysko na kiju. Swietna wprost sylwetka! Gdzie Ty je wszystkie spotykasz? Jak ja nareszcie spotkalam kormorana, to mi go Fotokaruselen ukradl, tak po prostu - a ja wyladowalam znowu z golebiami. Dzieki za slodkie komentarze, jest mi bardzo milo, ze o mnie pamietasz.

Cormorants like crows love sitting on the very top. Nice.

They're real posers Joo. :-)

Jacob said...

Now that's a bird that inhabits Florida also...cormorants and anhingas. Very similar and great fun to watch...especially as they swim and dive for fish!

I agree, the cormorant is a good looking bird. :)

Hilke Breder said...

Beautiful! He's a showman!

Jean said...

He looks like King of the World atop the snag!

Just look at that beak and that long tail!

Ależ on Ci pięknie pozował do zdjęć, aż zazdroszczę. Mnie się raz udało zrobić kilka zdjęć szpakowi i się cieszyłam. Pozdrawiam ciepło

was it a comorant? Great set of photos!

JM said...

He surely is, Joo. I love cormorants and there are so many species, even here.

Trotter said...

Lovely pics!!

Thanks for the info on my blog!! Now a last query: During the four hour cruise (the one I can also make...) do you go on small boats or is it a large one? They say it includes lunch...

Thanks in advance...

Kalyan said...

Simply beautifully captured shots...lovely!

Larry said...

Nice series of a Great Cormorant right Joo? According to wikipedia, this bird's wingspan is 4 to 5 feet! I would love to see one of those!

Carletta said...

He/she chose a perfect spot under that gorgeous blue sky to pose for you as well.
Nicely captured!
