Dude With ‘Tude

Fronting up to a desk job every day for a prolong period is a sure way to loose contact with photography. Or is it?

Well it might be an easy excuse but really there is no reason why a quick lunch break and a 30 minute stroll away from your desk can’t be used to keep your your photographic eye sharp and get a little exercise at the same time. Today I did just that, grabbing my camera and heading out for a quick stroll.

Ten minutes into a little sunshine and fresh air I came across this little guy, a juvenile pied cormorant who just oozed attitude. For a few minutes it preened and peered gawking at me with all kinds of expressions as I lay on the ground capturing this portrait.

Then without warning it turn around, raised its backside in the air towards me and plopped into the water. Thanks dude!
