How to fish like a Cormorant

Double-crested Cormorants are avid fishers and will fight fiercely to keep their catch from other birds.   I was fascinated watching this cormorant a few years ago fish expertly and then swallow a mouthful, all in a matter of 10 seconds.  The following sequence was shot in the Ding Darling Preserve, Florida using a Canon S3IS with a 1.7 teleconverter lens.

Here are a couple more photos of cormorants taken more recently with a Canon T2i/55-250mm IS telephoto lens
