Great Cormorants Drying their Wings,Binalong Bay,Tasmania,Australia. by 

olympus mju 7020…..Cormorants stand with their wings outstretched on a lichen covered rock at Binalong Bay,northeast Tasmania.

I live in Tumut at the base of the Snowy Mountains in N.S.W. I travel to Tasmania quite often to photograph the wonderful landscapes and plant life, unique to this beautiful island state. Fungi, mosses and lichens are my particular interest. I hope that you enjoy looking at the results of my wonderful photographic journey!

    Beautiful, love the dragonlike cormorants!

  • Hi Kat,
    Thanks very much for your comment. I found out that they were drying their wing when I was identifying them on line and I saw a similar shot of one. There I was,thinking that they were doing some kind of strange ritual, but the answer was quite simple ! thank you also for adding this picture to your favourites.I really appreciate your interest.
    Best Wishes,

    ooo one of my favorite groups of birds! This past summer I went to the coast of California and got to see a whole gathering of them fishing and sunning on the rocks. This image brings LOTS of awesome memories…but OUR rocks didn’t have that gorgeously striking LICHEN! That color is incredible!

  • Hi Carla,
    Nice to hear from you again,
    Thanks for your kind comment. Tasmania has very high average rainfall so I guess that maybe that is the reason for the orange lichens.
    Best Wishes,
