Bird landing

Is it a shag? Cormorant? One of the two. Any way shot these fellows down in Cervantes from the beach sitting out on the old part of the jetty. Nice sun on my back lighting the birds well.

Shot with the 600mmm AF-S II 1/2000 sec at f5 ISO160 Daylight WB.

Love how the little bird is leaning back thinking I am going to get squashed here.

Thats it I am off to bed!

  1. Great shot David, 1/2000 about time you got some good light into that lens.

  2. Nice and sharp David. I wish I had a 600mm! The bird is a Pied Cormorant or Yellow-faced Cormorant. Have a good one.
