This cormorant was perching just above the water line, but at a very difficult angle due to the scrubs on the riverbank blocking my view and the trail handrails preventing me to lower my lens. After some awkward adjustment I had the subject in a tight frame and fired away. Only noticed the water ripple once uploaded the picture on my computer. A nice bonus.

At the public park. More comfortable foraging on land but still mostly seen near the water bodies.
