17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A Cormorant preening in the sunshine

As I was leaving Green Cay Wetlands after two hours of photographing birds and other wildlife, this beautiful Cormorant flew over landed in front of me on the boardwalk railing and began preening in the sun. I very much appreciated its posing just for me!
