VERY nice--color, contrast, mystery (what is that dark form?).  A great impressionistic image.

FWIW, I probably would have developed it with a little more contrast...darkness...in it.  But I love gloom, and it's your image.   Smiley

"Cormorant," Chris. The Japanese have been fishing with them for about 1300 years. See http://www.phototravels.net/japan/ukai-cormorant-fishing.html.

I like the image. Good catch.

I can understand the confusion. The anhinga and the cormorant appear pretty similar at first glance, but the anhinga has that twisty neck that gives him his other name: "snake bird." He also has a straight beak while the cormorant has a hooked beak.

Yeah, I wouldn't last ten minutes without my World Web Pro dictionary that lets me highlight a word and look it up with the click of a keyboard shortcut.

Anybody believe in coincidence? This morning I walked the river for a while. At one point an anhinga flew by high overhead, but I had my D800 with a 70-200 lens on it and I popped him. On my way back down the river I saw a cormorant fishing. When he saw me he took off. Again, he was pretty far away, but I popped him too.

Both of these pics are seriously cropped, but I'm posting them for instruction rather than criticism. Look at the anhinga's beak, and then the cormorant's beak. Since the anhinga has his neck pulled in and pretty straight it's hard to tell the difference between the necks on the two birds, but the beaks tell the tale.
