Ideal angle on the Great cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo). This particular location has closely-grazed fields going all the way into the water, allowing me to get very close to the water’s edge. The head is in the first ray of sunlight from a rising sun, but the body is still shaded by the embankment. EOS 1DIV with EF600mm at 1/3200 f5 ISO1000.
