Finally some sunlight to see the colours clearly 😍 °
The little dot in the tree to the left of pic three is a cormorant! First I've seen one °
Here it is in the gap in the oak! °
@sophia Cormorants are neat! If you have the right environment they like to pose drying their wings and looking very photogenic
@anne that's so beautiful!
@sophia I really mean it about posing, this character stood there for an hour while I noodled about with lenses. The biggest challenge was the whole bird didn't fit into frame for my longest lens. All in the park around the corner - this bird was not at all afraid of people. A different park a little further away I spotted five or six cormorants posing in a group. Amsterdam has a wonderful variety of water birds in the parks and canals.
@anne id heard so much about the ones here. Up to five at a time sometimes, but just always missed them I guess. They often go to a different nearby one instead. I noticed they were very happy sunning themselves
The ravens were not impressed, it's the tree the female likes
sparkle sparkle, bitches
