    • The great Cormorants were after flathead grey mullets. The first one (at the left of the photo) almost immediately got one, and set the rest off on a frenzy. (It must have been terrifying for the mullets…)

    • Thank you Mr. Hien!
      Cormorants are under-appreciated (often they are seen as nuisances here) and I wanted to show my appreciation for these amazing & resilient water-birds.

      I came upon this “hunt & chase” scene unexpectedly. It was late afternoon at a nature reserve, grey day, and everything seemed very quiet. Suddenly, dozens of Great cormorants formed an army (navy?) and went on a feeding frenzy. It was quite heart pounding. I can’t imagine how terrifying it must have been for the fish!!
