[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photograph is taken in Rikugien in Tokyo Bunkyo-ku. This garden was the residence of the general close attendants of the Edo period once. It is a typical stroll garden which there is a big pond in the center and a pine is planted in the circumference, and also has a slightly elevated hill collectively. I visited this after a long time. The flower of the azalea was cared for finely at the site inside the garden. When I stood on the slightly elevated hill facing a pond, Great Cormorant was sunbathing on the rock of the pond. Great Cormorant is a bird with the bird of the long and slender body covered with black feather and yellow beak. If it sees from appearance, it is a somewhat grotesque and not graceful bird so that it may be a crow. However, it is interesting when operation of this bird is seen. Thus, it has rested by the rock, it sometimes moves to a wooden branch, or it will dive and will swim in a pond. It looks like a Ninja.

Great Cormorant:

Phylum: Chordata
Class: Aves
Order: Suliformes
Family: Phalacrocoracidae
Genus: Phalacrocorax
Species: P. carbo
