Last week during my Wednesday Walk on the Rail Trail, we came across a long-dead tree with large black birds seated upon the branches. I spent about ten or so minutes hovering around them, trying to get some nice shots of them while my partner and son waited impatiently and did little arm-waving stompy dances to shoo away all the flies.
Guess it's what we get for wandering through the midst of farmland. 😆
It wasn't until I got home and did some investigating that I discovered the birds were Great Cormorants, the first I've ever seen in this area. 🙂
When I was going through the photos, I was tempted to use them for last week's white prompt simply because the background was so white, but because the subject was black I thought it better to use them for this week.
They're lovely birds and were the highlight of my Wednesday Walk. I was lucky I came across them when I did because on the way back home they had all flown away and I'd have never known they were there. 😮
Good timing! 😁
