Cormorant Profile

Double crested cormorant photographed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. A couple of things worth mentioning here: I was lucky to get this shot at just 1/60 sec and 700mm at ISO800 from a window mount on my truck. The bird was in open shade and hadn't been out of the water long, so his body was still wet and reflected the blue of the sky. This is nearly full frame, and that and the spot-on exposure minimize apparent noise.
