Lake Cormorants

 

I didn't know that we had cormorants in Ohio. When I got up early and captured these birds on the pond, I thought they were loons. I was set straight by a photo friend on flikr that recognized them right away.

Now I know. Don't you like learning something you didn't know before? So, there you go. Double breasted cormorants on a pond in Ohio. Go figure. I wonder if we have penguins? They might have wandered in with the hard frost we got last weekend.

  1. These are pure awesomeness, Tim! Seriously beautiful and I love the mist. I wish I was able to get up early enough to capture something like this. I meant to go on a sunrise photowalk in the summer, but I never managed to do that. I’m too much of a evening/night person.
