Back at the Pond

November 2nd 4 am....

Later that morning...

What we have here (according to the bird book) is a double crested   Cormorant.

It is related to the Anhinga but smaller and does not have a pointy beak

... it does however have impeccable posture!

... I'm not sure but I feel like I'm getting the Evil Eye!

Oh, you have a newbie at the pond! Love the way he poses for the camera! LOL. I too love that first shot of the moon and agree with Debi that it would be beautiful framed.

Great photos, as always, especially the first one!

Have I told you how hated the Cormorants are here in the Great Lakes? They decimate the fishing.
