Belle composition,il ya plusieur sorte d'oiseaux, et l'éclairageest parfait.

Félicitations et merci!

Very artistic composition. Lots happening in this scene and its captured very well. Thanks for sharing!

Well they look like cormorants, and if they are, the species that I listed below are native to Iraq.

PELECANIFORMES: Phalacrocoracidae

Great Cormorant Phalacrocorax carbo
Socotra Cormorant Phalacrocorax nigrogularis - Vulnerable
European Shag Phalacrocorax aristotelis

Here is another cormorant species but the coloration of the plumage does not match the birds on the left:

Pygmy Cormorant Phalacrocorax pygmaeus - near threatened

Cool shot but kinda small to figure out what species this is. They appear so small in your picture you can call them CormorAnts :)

Hi Steven
