Cormorants in Flight

A V-shaped skein of double-crested cormorants takes wing over the Atlantic Ocean near Folly Beach. These sea birds, and others, flock just offshore in the winter, and offer interesting birdwatching especially when the light is good.


  1. I love the prehistoric appearance of Cormorants, though sea-watching has never been a branch of birding which appealed to me.

  2. A fine action capture. I like the scene too. Well done.

  3. Happy New Year, Doug!

    I like the light in the photo.

  4. Gorgeous photo of the birds in motion. The silver glow you caught is very pretty!
