king of the river

By annettep38  
One from San Carlos de Nicaragua.

A friend talked me into a trip with the booze boat. Local gringos take the boat to a town on the corner of Lago Nicaragua to stock up on booze. I stocked up on wildlife.

Many thanks to Len for his UA on the sunrise. And to all of you for your great comments and votes.
No, I did NOT stock up on booze. I was far too busy trying to take birds with two different teles from a pretty fast moving boat.
I took about 600 photos, among them 80 photos of anhingas, 63 great egrets, 60 cormorants, ospreys, various egrets,kingfishers and jacanas. Even some finches in the little park of San Carlos. Apart from my friends nobody even went to the park Smile.
Dumped about 150 shots, too. Not bad for about $30 + the border fee.

A well observed and captured shot of this beautifully posed Cormorant. Both the colouring and detail is nicely captured.

Thanks for sharing Annette.

Your booze cruises are a lot more exotic than the ones on offer here Annette.
