A larger view of the cormorant juggling the fish it caught until it could point it into is beak and swallow it.

The gangly Double-crested Cormorant is a prehistoric-looking, matte-black fishing bird with yellow-orange facial skin. Though they look like a combination of a goose and a loon, they are relatives of frigatebirds and boobies and are a common sight around fresh and salt water across North America—perhaps attracting the most attention when they stand on docks, rocky islands, and channel markers, their wings spread out to dry. These solid, heavy-boned birds are experts at diving to catch small fish.

Hello Alan,
Great action shot as the cormorant is about to swallow its meal. Perfect timing to catch the fish in mid air like this.
