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.
This cormorant may not have chosen the *best* spot to stand around and dry off his wings. But other then one big mouth, no one seems to care much so I guess it’s working out OK for now.
Oh man, that is a walk on the truly wild side.
It still amazes me how often the birds appear to actually ignore the alligators. And lucky for the birds the gators do the same. 🙂
It seems there is a lot of risk taking at your pond.
Some of the birds seem to enjoy living on the edge. Brave or just dopey? Not always sure. 🙂
Wow, I think the cormorant was really pushing his luck. 😯 Was he playing ‘Chicken’?
That cormorant better hope those gators are not thinking… ummm… chicken. 🙂
That bird’s ballsy!
The funny thing is how thoroughly unconcerned the bird looks!
Coraggioso il cormorano, speriamo che non se lo siano mangiato!!!
Bellissimi scatti Phil, complimenti!
😆 😆 😆
Wow, he’s taking his life into the danger zone. That is definitely alligator island — and that one guy was sure letting him know about it! Love that reflection!
I can’t make up my mind whether he is very brave or on a suicide mission!
Wow, thats kinda scary, but it really seems the alligators and birds get along just fine and know their boundaries!!! Great Shot!
Tell me those wings remained attached to that bird! What a fabulous photo!
That does look a bit risky. Still, I expect he’s ready to take off if there’s a move from his companions…
