[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Phalacrocorax carbo. It lives in inshore coastal waters, lakes, reservoirs and breeds on cliffs and rocks and in trees. Here in lake Kerkini's western shore. The lake was formed in 1932, when a dam was built on Strymon river. It is the wildlife-richest habitat in Greece and one of the ten water-reserves protected by Ramsar Treaty.
Photo processed in Photoshop.

Hi Theologos.
Wonderful exposure, detail and colour of this shag. Nice composition of him out on the rock with surrounding water.

Hi Theologos,
Splendid shot of this solitary Cormorant relaxing in the sun or looking lost. The rippled waters give a nice effect and you have captured a nice pose. Very neat and sharp image with fine focus and details. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Great color and composition...A fine POV and DOF...TFS
