p.1 #1 · Brandt's Cormorants (10)


Some shots from the central Oregon coast from various days in various types of lighting. These are another cormie that is difficult to photograph but not quite as difficult as the Pelagic Cormorants.

In no particular order. As always all C&C is appreciated

Wow... These are top-notch shots of the cormie, Tim. I can't pick a single one since they are so beautiful. Every pose is very special.

Nice series my friend, I like the Brandt's much more than the Double-crested.
Great behavioral shots with #3 being my favorite

Fine work capturing all the different dark tones of this beautiful bird, Tim. The blue eyes and throat really pops out.
You got some neat behavioral images and great poses.
4 and 10 are my favorites.

Terrific series, Tim, with a wonderful mix of environment, behavior, and portrait shots. I have yet to see a Brandt's anywhere, so these seem very special indeed. My favorite is the third image, which seems to have a bit of everything (aesthetic appeal, behavior, environment). It's also quite striking that the crests are so visible in most of these birds. (I guess they're part of the breeding plumage, but seem harder to see in the "real" double crested cormies). Man, that blue color is something else!

WOW! seems to be a popular and appropriate beginning, Tim
These are incredible good- and enjoyable- images, starting from the very first and running all the way to the end.
Killer harsh light? And I love it! That may explain some of the critiques I get (especially on other FM forums). I shoot a lot in the harsh light of mid-day, because I'm there .

I am seeing new species from you on every post Tim.
And what a striking bird this one is with all that vivid blue and trailing head plumes!
Great set and every one a pleasure to view
