    Shag on a rock – lovely

    I’m suitably impressed Tonny. The cormorant is not only beautifully posed, but that rock is such a great addition to the composition … well done!

  • Thank you Ms Dale. As I arrived she just spread her wings and posed. Not all birds do this for me.

    G’day Tonny!
    New, improved 3100 is easier & better than the olde D70? Has worked well in this shot, with good detail and colour – plus well timed & composed. You are sure it’s a “lady” bird, aren’t you? – how can one tell sans hiring a chicken sexer? Eggs marks the spot?
    :)G!
