Hello Razvan,

-19°Celsius is also for waterbirds a very difficult period.
Perhaps is the nature one of the best referees.
Composition and presentation are very well.

Have a nice weekend,

In tara asta nici cormoranii nu o duc prea bine!
Dar asta este!
Iarna ne apasa pe toti!
Felicitari pentru aceasta captura!

Buna Razvan,
Trista imagine ai surprins dar aceasta este realitatea unei ierni friguroase. Buna compozitie a unei realitati dezamagitoare.
Numai bine,

A great cature and thank you for sharing it.

hello Razvan,
A very special light over these two Cormorants which are resting over the water. The colors are very fine and the composition well chosen.
Winter has also its charm.
Kind regards

Ciao Razvan. Nice delicate capture for an intrigant pose. Good details.

Hello Razvan
very nice shot of beautiful pair of Pygmy Carmorant. focus, snowy composition and BG colors very nice. nicely framed. thanks for sharing, have a nice weekend

Buna Razvan,
Desi fotografia este excelent realizata cu detalii foarte bune pe o zi cetoasa si friguroasa, ma necajeste moartea pasarii de alaturi.
Este clar ca natura face o selectie si doar cei puternici rezista.
Un weekend placut!

Hi Razvan,
very special capture with sperbs clarity. You too have shown its reflection in good view. i like the features of the feathers and the branches it perched really make you composition well shown.
I like the blurry background too.
