I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
Seeing this cormorant burst up out of the salt marsh like his tail was on fire indicated to me that he had someplace important to be and needed to get there immediately!
Thanks for checking this out!
Doveva essere molto importante arrivare, ha una grande fretta!!!
Ottimo scatto Phil, complimenti.
C’era qualcosa di molto importante!
He certainly looked frightened.
I don’t know if he was frightened but he sure was in a hurry. 🙂
Looks like he has a fish in his throat.
Does look like a partially swallowed fish in there doesn’t it?! 🙂
Or was Mr A trying to sneak up on him?
Oh see, you guys are so quick to blame poor little Mr. A for scaring off the cormorant when all he is trying to do is be friendly to all the birds. 😛 😀
Yeah, I can just imagine how picked-upon he is!!! 😀
Even his bill looks intense! He’s focused on getting out of there for sure. Great shot!
I wonder if he just realized that his wife has been waiting for him and needed to move FAST! 🙂
Another very nice one. 🙂
I appreciate that, thank you!
Thanks a bunch Laura!
Phil, Maybe your fish didn’t taste exactly right. Great Shot.
They can’t blame me for the quality of the fish, the tide brings ’em in and takes ’em out. It’s up to the birds to pick out the nice ones. 😀 Thanks for checking this out!
I think Gunta is right.
That is one worried-looking cormorant!
He does appear to be more then a little concerned doesn’t he?! Maybe his wife is waiting for him. 😛 🙂
This reminds me of Ted when he hears the clinking of food hitting his bowl and tries to run after being dead asleep. Great shot!
Oh yeah I love that ‘cartoon’ run. Where all the paws are going like crazy but the animal is not moving yet. Ha!
Firstly Happy New Year Phil, to you and all your family – this is right up my street the explosion of energy to get the cormorant airborne is something else – we have lots along our coast – I often watch them more graceful on top of the water and swimming versus flying – bursting in to the sky and crashing back on to the water. These shots are the type I look forward to the most from you – keep em coming please in 2014 – all the best Scott
Well I truly appreciate your very kind and thoughtful comments Scott, thanks very much!
We have quite a few cormorants as well, sometimes too many. A large group of these guys can wipe out the fish population in a pond very quickly which gets some folks quite annoyed.
So glad you liked this photo!
Hope you have a great 2014!
