  2. Brilliant photos of the Cormorant, Bob. We had a bunch of them a year ago in a slough just outside of town. In fact, I had pre-scheduled a post of two of them for tomorrow.

  3. The top of a tree seems to be a good place to hang the washing out to dry!!
    Cracking set of images Bob, an unusual perspective to an every day scene...[;o)

  11. Such an elegant bird. Ours tend to adopt that position on the paving at the edge of the lake. All lined up. And beautiful.
    Love this post. Thank you.
