Sweet!

Where were you when you got this shot?

sek

More crazy eyes.
A Double crested Cormorant stops fishing to check me out. The bird was perfectly lit in warm afternoon light. They have such bizarre eyes, I did a max crop to see the inner structure. Very odd !

60D and 100- 400mm  The crop was shot at 1000th at f5.5 and ISO 1000
(the eye crop shows some great inner detail when viewed at full size.)
Thanks - the photos were taken in Edgartown Harbor on Martha's Vineyard.

African Snake Eagle, I think.

Birds aren't my usual as I like stuff with Large Teeth & Attitude, but I cant resist Eagles & Owls, Ostriches are good also, they don't move too fast.

I think you are right in your bird ID.

Excellent shot.
