A cormorant on reeds in the Kabini Backwaters, Coorg, Karnataka, India

This cormorant was sitting quietly on reeds in the backwaters of the Kabini river in Coorg, Karnataka, India. It was quite close to the shore and was not disturbed by attempts at photographing it. The reflections of the reeds in the mildly rippling surface of the water was pleasing.
