These two White-breasted Cormorants were very close to me and I thoroughly enjoyed photographing them. The patterns on there plumage was so clear and stunning and I couldn't believe my luck.

Enjoy and comments are welcome.

Hallo Natley
Two beauties you have here. The details on the feathers are eye-catching and truly beautiful, and the way you photographed it is just great. It actually looks like fancy woven material. Thanks for sharing. You are truly fortunate to be able to be so close to nature. Best regards.

Hello Natley,
Very nice photo in beautiful natural colours and very good sharpness. The markings in the feathers are gorgeous. Nice depth of field.

Very nice composition. Excellent details, the patterns are wonderful. Good to see these birds.

Hi Natley

It is interesting to see a species of cormorant other than a black cormorant which we see plenty here. And you have captured this pair very well, especially the plumage in great detail. I wonder if these also bask in the Sun with their wings spread out and head turned. Hope you get that pose next time and present it here.


Bonjour Natley,
Superbe duo très bien restitué dans une belle lumière et sous une excellente profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
