Super shot Yves with great timing. Love the splashdown with the water spraying behind the Cormorant. He stands out beautifully against the water. Nice fun shot Yves.

Thanks Debra. They all need to decelerate when landing but the cormorant really make the show. They do it in style. I love that we well see the palm feet pushing the water in front.

Heather Mellon

Very nice action shot Yves and well worth the wait. Excellent focus and clarity on the cormorant. He really shines against the beautiful tones of the water and river bank.

Thank you Heather. Every year I can't resist taking some shots at those guys. Specialy in the mating season for the blue color they have at that moment.


good timing on this one

Thank you very much Jeff. I waited a good 10 minutes to finaly get that shot. Quite satisfied.

Flying low over the Magog river, upstream from downtown Sherbrooke, cormorants reaches the Drummond dam and make a spectacular landing , just next to their prefered dryer rock. There, they will fishes around and sunbath on the rock.
