I have chased this bird for years.

The Cormorant!

I live near a very large bird refuge.  The Cormorant frequents the refuge.  But hates to be photographed.  Not sure if they have keen sight and hearing. Even my blind has not allowed a descent shot of the Cormorant. Until last week. Hundreds of miles from home. In Yellowstone.

Pretty simple color. Simple bird. Funny poses….

Great Black Cormorant bow

Like most all birds it is beautiful in flight….

It was a test for me and my new lens.  Man was I happy with the outcome.  Low light.  High ISO.  look at the detail!   I am very happy!
