A splendid sight on these black-cormorant with open wings.
The big foe of the fisher men in Belgium, twenty five of the black-cormorant fish in one day almost the completely lake empty.
Very well taken care off.
Nice composition, excellent presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
A nice weekend,

Velika stetocina, gde se pojavi napravi veliku stetu, pojede mnogo riba ...
Dobar trenutak snimka kormorana koji susi krila posle lova, lepa fotografija.
Imajte lep dan i vreme, kod nas kisa.
Great pests, which appears as a great damage, eating more fish ...
A good time recording the cormorants drying wings after fishing, beautiful images.
Have a nice day and time, in our rain.
All the best.

Merveilleusement bien capté ce cormoran, j'en vois à tous les jours, l'été au bord de la mer, mais jamais d'aussi prêt. La silhouette avec les ailes ouvertes est magnifique et les branches sèches entrelacées en avant-plant sont des plus intéressantes. Beau contraste avec le ciel d'un bleu pur.
Félicitations!... et bonne fin de semaine,

Appears magnificent so standing on natural materials over the unobtrusive backdrop!

A superb composition, love the profile picture of the cormorants, well captured in the moment that this flapping wings, fantastic graphics and the nice effect of these branches, as a background the beautiful blue sky is great.
A really nice image that I love.

And again you show us the fisherman, this time feathered. Cormorants are great birds, though often it wreckers, able to destroy completely the edges of lakes and ruthlessly destroying the state of fish. Colossal quality photographs.
בוקר טוב. ושוב לך להראות לנו את הדייג, הפעם נוצות. הקורמורנים הם עופות גדולים, אם כי לעתים קרובות זה חבלנים, מסוגלים להשמיד לחלוטין את הקצוות של אגמים באכזריות השמדת המדינה של דגים. איכות הצילומים קולוסאלי. שלך.

An amazing shot of this black cormorant in silhouetted form. I like the beautiful blue sky as a nice contrast. Splendid sharpness and colors.

Hi dear Ike
I think you have this bird as a friend, because he seems to be showing off for you and actually posing for the camera! Lok at him flexing his wings, wow, you caught him at the perect moment. I love the way he contrasts against the soft blue tones of the sky and the texture of the tree is another attractive element. Congrats.
Have a lovely day

Very nice photo with lovely composition and good contrast with the colors blue and black.
jmdias (65587) 2012-02-03 5:19
excellent framing. I liked the visual effect of the black silhouette of the bird against the blue sky and the graphism of the branches. nice compo.

Superb capture of this elegant cormorant. the position in which you photographed it makes it look very noble.
Excellent contrast between the black bird and the pure, blue sky.
Great composition with the intricate branches as a roost.
ourania (47844) 2012-11-23 12:03
a great timely capture of a lovely bird standing on the slender intricate branches with its wings open. Your composition is wonderful, its minimalism works very effectively. It's the black cormorant and the branches against a delightful blue backdrop, just three colours; it's almost graphic. The branches also offer depth. Lovely work, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend, hoping for peace,
