The theme for CFFC this week is funny, and I happened to run into a funny situation with a cormorant yesterday.
You’ll have to excuse the terrible quality of the photos. It was harsh mid day light with the sun at a bad angle, and the birds were fishing a long way out from shore so I had to heavily crop.
I started shooting this cormorant after it had surfaced and swallowed half of its catch. Normally I see them come up with nothing, or a fish. This one had come up with some kind of big eel type thing (I’m not a marine biologist), and was having a difficult time choking the whole thing down.
Hold still, I’m trying to eat you!

Photography for Beginners Part 15: Types of Night Photography
I didn’t include any images in my Night Photography posts because they were already overly long. So I’m displaying a few here.
All photos were taken with my current camera, a Fujifilm X-T20 with an APS-C crop sensor. All focal lengths are given in full frame equivalents.
All of the photos are SOOC (straight out of camera) JPEGS. SOOC means you haven’t done any editing. Though I did reduce resolution so the files wouldn’t take up too much of my limited WP storage allowance. (Click on the images to see clearly with no WP compression.)
