Farne Island Shag

By BiffoClick
Even with completely the wrong lens, the gods sometimes smile on us ! Rushing for the boat from Seahouses, I (like an idiot) only had an 18-55mm lens with me when this image of Phalacrocorax aristotelis was created on Farne Island last spring. This shag had nested on the cliff right next to the path to the lighthouse and was completely oblivious to the presence of the crowd of photographers ! This dark glossy green plumage and the crest on their head only develops in the breeding season. Converted to jpeg from RAW - not much else done to it. Thanks for looking.
