hallo Christodoulos

thanks greeting lou

Hi Christodoulos
Cormorants are definitely beautiful birds when seen in good light

This superb cormorant reminds me of another, called Biguá and abounds in my region, Mesopotamia Argentina, which abound in our great water complex, with its maze of islands. The Phalacrocorax olivaceus has strong similarities with this Phalacrocorax carbo. Thank you for sharing this beautiful species. Special mention to the great work you have done to avoid the danger of overexposure to be so brightly lit.
