Cormorant photo wins

X_BCormorant MBay3_2016 CMaParsonsJust sharing good news.

A photo that I took in March of a young Brandt’s cormorant at the Coast Guard Breakwater has won 1st place in the Sanctuary Life category of the National Marine Sanctuaries’ photo contest Get Into Your Sanctuary. I’m surprised and pleased that an everyday coastal bird (that I happen to like) won!

My thanks to the contest organizers and to everyone who has supported my sharing of Monterey Bay experiences.

  2. It is an amazing shot!

    • Thanks, Adrian.
      I’m always amazed at how the best shots are often the easiest to take. This cormorant stood on the breakwater preening for a long time while I took my time taking photos. It was too easy.
      By the way, I love your nonsensical website.
      Chris
