I don't see Cormorants too often, usually one or two in flight in mid-Spring on their way to nesting sites. This pair was at a small local lake, diving for fish, so something different to observe and photograph. I would have to say their eyes are their best feature.

Nicely captured pair, the eyes are key, as you say.

Great find, Paul, I like the similar head positions and of course those beautiful eyes.

This is a treat paul! A beautiful capture of this pair. I love the symmetry of their movement, excellent detail, colour - and of course one of nature's gems, the wonderful cormornt eyes. Well done!
