Amazing stop action shot of the birds battling for that perch. Love the way you got the cormorant with its wings spread out and the pelican with its beak wide open. A nat geo work my friend. Awesome. #10312733

Oh my...excellent timing, excellent shooting, perfect stop action of both these fellas! Love the close crop - showcases that super feather detailing...oooo, ooo...and the light thru the crop of the pelican - very cool!! I'm excited (if not more than a little green:)! Good one, Carol!! #10315347
