This log at the edge of one of Magnolia Plantation’s ponds is often occupied by a drying Anhinga, but on this day a Double-crested Cormorant had possession.

I have rarely seen one this close, and he seemed to only be paying attention to the warm sun.

About an hour later when I passed back by, sunlight was no longer shining on the pond or the bird, and the Cormorant was in the same spot.

    1. I was rather surprised he didn’t fly off, he was only a few feet from a popular walking path and other folks had passed by, too.
      Thank you, Alice, glad to know that you liked them.
