As I continue to work on moving my photo galleries I have come across images that I am reprocessing or processing for the first time and this is one of those images that I hadn’t touched. I was photographing birds in flight from the Gulf Pier at Fort De Soto when this Double-crested Cormorant flew in for a landing. I photographed this as the cormorant flew over my head to land on a light pole right above me.
This is a young cormorant and part of the reason the tail looks tattered is that the cormorant is going through a molt, the four central feathers of the tail are fresh and coming in, the outer ones are worn and would soon be replaced after I took this image.
I’m glad the cormorant didn’t decide to relive itself as it came in to land or I might have been wearing white-wash!
Life is good.
