These Cormorants are quite fast on their take-off, I got lucky with this shot.

Preston. Being there at the right time is luck. Getting a good photo takes expertise. With this shot you had both......Scotty.

Nice work Preston!

I don’t know how many shots opportunities like this I have completely messed up. Cormorants seem to be a frustrating subject for me.

There were about 50 of them lining the bank on the coarse just waiting their turn to take off. I got a lot of shots to post. They are quite fast on their takeoffs and use the water as a runway. I will be better prepared the next time
The new lens is quite remarkable. I have the new 1.4tc. But I have to move back cause I'm so close to the action
If you ever come my way give me a call
If u golf that much better. 👹

I have loads of pictures I've trashed that are ample proof the combination of timing, equipment and skill I've been trying to coordinate for a shot like that. Wow!

Excellent shot! But it reminds me more of a flying boat taking off or landing on the water but it is an excellent shot, thanks for posting!
