Double-crested Cormorant

The cormorants are fun to watch as they repeatedly dive for food, pop their heads up out of the water, then dive again.  The trick is to guess where they will pop up next because they generally don’t stay above water more than a few seconds when they are hunting.  This was shot at the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge at the southern end of Rest Lake in November 2007 with a Canon XT and Sigma Bigma (50-500mm).  500mm, 1/500, f7.1, 0EV.
