A portrait of a Cormorant taken at the World of Birds in Cape Town, South Africa. He's a smug little fella with a proud pose. I'm not sure exactly which species this is - I suspect a Great Cormorant, but if you can ID this bird, I'd be glad to hear from you!
The World of Birds is a wild life sanctuary with a few thousand birds - simply huge! One could easily spend a whole day here, though the guide books usually ask for only 1-2 hours. If you love birds, do budget a lot more time for this wonderful place (I recommend at least half a day!).
This photo was taken using the Canon 5D and 100-400L. Photo shooting at the World of Birds can be tricky, for even with the strong African sun some of the aviaries are quite dim. The image stabiliser of the 100-400L definately came in very handy here.
