I am thinking this is a Redfaced Cormorant, I couldn't locate an exact looking bird to confirm.. if anyone has any ideas other than mine, I am happy to hear them. Grin They are such beautiful beings, not people wary..They love to stand with their wings out, looking very proud! One of the versions is the first time I have ever seen one actually in the water swimming. Photos taken late afternoon.

The last version. the pond, is where he was. Agapanthas lining the pond edges, just for Colleen.Grin

Thank you for all comments and clicks on my last upload of the Yellow Rose.. it is much appreciated as always.

A wonderful close up of the Cormorant Lynne - such a magnificent wing span.
the face does look interesting so I'll be glad to see somebody confirm your ID.

Very pre-historic looking bird, Lynnie.
Great pictures - including Colleen's flowers.
If you ever do one for me, I'd like bathing beauties, please.

Great shots Lynnie - I particularly like V2, such a clear shot of the bird and it is complimented by the colour of the water (almost the same colour as its eyes)! Well done indeed!

Lynette, I think your Cormorant is The Great Cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo), I think you call them Black Cormorants in Australia?
The image may have slightly the wrong white balance and be a little over-saturated, giving the red colour throat patch, which should be more of a yellow colour. I don't think this bird is in breeding plumage, because it would display a white thigh patch (not apparent) and I don't think the throat patch changes colour when in breeding plumage, anyway. There is a sub-species, found in Australasia, with a crest, which looks very similar to yours.
Its wings are outstretched to dry the wings, which are not water repellant - and your images look fantastic because of this..Smile
