Sunday at the Pond

I looked out upon the Pond and what did I see?... Not one but the Pair of Cormorants!  (according to the bird book, they look like Double Crested Cormorants)   So I took a walk up to wee if I could get some better pictures.  (I did stay a little away so they wouldn't be frightened)

The male/female (not sure which) was sunning his wings (although the sun was behind a cloud)  The female looked uninterested.. they both even looked straight at me!

I did some zooming on the male who was showing me his beautiful feathers!........

He was quite oblivious to my camera.

I'd say he looks like a proud peacock but ya know.. no color but brown and more brown lol.

I see the female here a lot but the male doesn't always follow her here.

The the male decided to go for a swim.... not the best photo but it is a "motion" shot...

a bit later when I was back in my apartment I saw the female taking off.. she was on the far side of the pond running towards me...

More newbies!!! Aren't they great? The feathers on that male are stunning and you got the detail of them brilliantly, Pat.
