Basking cormorant

I do hope I’m not becoming a bit of a bore with all this bird photography… I blame it on the 70-200mm lens. Yeah, I always liked photographing them, but they were always small in the frame and you couldn’t really see all the detail in their feathers. But now… I am fascinated… my camera can capture things I could never see before. And well, you know how one thing leads to another… and I took a couple dozen of this guy. He seemed to be enjoying it, posing this way and that… and when I left him, he was still there, still striking a pose.

Tuhuna Cormorant

I continue my mission to photograph New Zealand’s birds. This lovely cormorant was presiding over a mangrove mudflat at Tahuna Torea, a reserve in Auckland’s eastern suburbs. He had rather a lot to say.
