17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Blue eyed Shags

A pair of blue eyed cormorants simultaneously preen each others feathers. This picture was taken on Paulet Island in Antarctica. The birds have no fear of humans and allowed me to be within a few feet of them to take the photograph.
