Cormorant on the Hunt

One of the neatest things I observed on my recent trip to Florida was Cormorants feeding.

This pond had a deeper channel near the edge and I had an obstructed view into the water, which was quite clear. I was amazed at how fast they can swim.

I watched two birds make several passes in front of me. Once there was a prize, complete with some vegetation.
