Photographer's Note

Fishing with cormorants at sunrise:

the birds dive underwater for several minutes until they grab a fish with their long beak. They can keep the fish in their gular pouch but not swallow. Cormorant fishing has been used in China for over 1,000 years but today is mainly a tourist attraction in the Guilin region.
