Camera Critters #57

Camera Critters by Misty Dawn, go here to see who's participating.

I was at the Cuyahoga River and a group of Cormorants were feeding on fish. It is interesting to see them with their heads and necks showing.
They started to fly but didn't go far.
You can see them running on water in this shot.
You can see a lot of critters above.

Always time well spent to be on the river.

Awesome shots! I love how they run across the water, then hide underneath the surface but for their periscope heads!

Wetlands and waterways nearly always provide interesting bird photography and you got some good action here.

Great shots! They really ride low in the water...just head and necks :-)

Hi Fishing Guy--Do you have any good fishing postcards? My Postcard Scavenger Hunt topic for May is FISH.

Wonderful photos !! Especially when you click on them to enlarge, you can see so many details..

It looks like a wonderful palce to spend some time with your camera. :-)

There are some cool shots of them running on the surface with their wings outstretched. The ones with just their heads above the surface, look like minature Nessies :-)

I've never seen more than one at a time. Great photographs of the fishing crew.

Commorants crack me up, we get a few each year and the girls and I love to watch their antics including when they sit on the log and dry out their arm pits!

Great shots, Fishing Guy. It's possible to follow the whole sequence as in a movie.

I love the way they sink until only the neck & head are showing!

Great shots!

I love when nature is full of critters! It would not be the same without them!
