Drying out

By ColleenA
Good day...
Thank you for the great response to my Princes pier image and to Jukka (Kuvailija), Maureen (HarrietH), Peter (Mollycat) and Ade (Ade123) for their UA's, all much appreciated
Some more images of Mr Grumpy (previous uploads of this cormorant) captured at Princes pier...
Have a great day...our Sunday weather has been rain, hail and sunshine...

this is the same bird, Colleen.. Someone said it right the last time - even if he is not grumpy, his face is such that he always looks complaining for one thing or the other..
caught in action here.. fine captures..

Lots to like here.
The grain in the wood, the attitude of Mr Grumpy, the colour of the water and lots more.

The classic drying posture in V 1 and 2 but a rather different one in V 3 as looks down enquiring about something in V 3.
Excellent shots, Colleen.
