~ Cormorant Deference Dance ~ Weekly Photo Challenge – Dance ~

A Double-crested Cormorant riding driftwood in the tide performed a series of submissive moves, as it approached and passed a dominant Double-crested Cormorant.

Notice how stark still the dominant bird remains upon its stationary float. This happened quite a distance out in the bay from where I stood, so the shots are cropped, and I increased saturation.

  1. If only I had JavaScript 😢
    Would it be possible, just maybe, next time you’re at the beach to take some close up shots of the pebbles and rocks and the water line?
