Birds- Cormorant Expressions



Going for a morning walk around a lake has many benefits. Fresh air, cool breeze and a lot of birdlife around. Central Park in Fremont, California was one such place where people enjoyed walks, group exercises, kids played and feed ducks. There were flocks of canada geese, common coots, families of mallards, egrets and cormorants. There were few more species of water birds which weren't in abundance. I love shooting cormorant expressions. They are very expressive birds :)

  3. This is an awesome shot of the cormorant! It's very difficult to see the details on the feathers, but you managed to do so here. Love the wide open mouth. Visiting from WBW.

  15. I love it! I'm happy when I get a nice pic of a bird, but that's usually when they are just sitting nicely in a tree. I love the expression you caught.
