[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Most of the birds at Corkscrew are not afraid of people so they are perfectly comfortable staying very close to the boardwalk, like the anhinga in this photo.

This is full frame with absolutely no cropping. 400mm f2.8 Canon lens, no converter.

Hello Gregory, Welcome to TN.
I really like your composition in this shot. The unusual pose makes for an interesting photo. The colors are beautiful and the lighting is right on the money. TFS.
I would love to someday get a 400MM f/2.8 Canon lens!! I presently use a 70-200mm F/2.8 Canon and have tried the 2x converter on it, but am not happy with the results, so I'm trading it back for a 1.4 converter instead.

hello Gregory
a exceptional composition with very good management of light,wonderful photo
TFS and welcome to TN

Hello Gregory,
Welcome on TN. You start with a great photo in excellent sharpness and splendid light. Very beautiful against the dark BG. Perfect composition.
Hope to see lot more.

very good composition. The gaze of the cormorant is very special. It seems that he has niticed you and that he is alerted, but nevertheless quite.
