London Cormorant


5"X7" Acrylic on board

For all I know this is a daily routine, although I felt quite special, witnessing this display. It would be easy to believe that this guy was a statue. He held this pose for several minutes, silhouetted against the afternoon sky. Finally he folded his wings and rested for a few more minutes before taking off.

 There were no Cormorants on the Thames when I was young, so it is testament to the cleanup of the water that there are now enough fish to support them.
