Female Cormorant Close Up

Cormorant Beauty

by Sange

It is not easy to capture Cormorants in the water because they swim very fast and only come up for air or to swallow a fish. This lady was kind enough to stay up a minute or so As I adjusted camera settings in order to catch her in the setting sun just right. I had to wait for her to go up and down 5 times before I had white balance adjusted, By then she was right below me by the boardwalk. I loved that Emerald eye and her fine regal pose. All manual settings.handheld/Kelvin Scale for white balance control
