    This is so nice and it's shiny eye really shines! It looks green here, but usually I find (when I see them "in person", i.e. with my eyes) they are more blue. Does anyone know what colour cormorant eyes really are???

    And isn't funny how this one seems to go under loaded with his heavy breakfast as he is?

    So you took these after you had taken that photo of the morning moon?

    No this pic I took today, the moon pic was from about a month back - just never got round to posting it :)

    There eyes always seem greenish to me, I will look properly next time to make sure...

    Thx for commenting

    By the way, I sent my son a link to this very thread so he could look at this photo, too. He likes angling for his hobby, and therefore does not really too much like the cormorants, since anglers and cormorants are in "fierce competition". So I told him I'd send him a link to a photo of "his enemy at breakfast". He wrote back that despite any "enmity" between anglers and cormorants he thought this was "a very good photo", after all! So there! Another fan! :D

    thx Greg, taken with the 300mm F4 with a 1.4 tele so a 420mm lens on a crop sensor D200.

    A few metres from the bird I guess.
