The Weekend in Black and White: Fishing Frenzy

The dark bird in the water is a cormorant and I got another shot where it had a fish in its mouth so I knew it was having some luck fishing. What surprised me was how the gulls seemed to be encroaching on the cormorant's fishing space. This shot is a little blurrier than I like but there was so much action going on that it was hard to get a clear shot that included the whole group.

I think the cormorant should be afraid - very afraid!

I think a bit of blur at times like this is great. You really did capture the movement beautifully. genie
