    Plain ol' cormorant. I don't think so. More like excellent cormorant. Love the way the wings curl up at the tips. Nice framing,light and pose.

    Pretty much like everything about this. Looking forward to trying to accomplish this with my R5 as well.

    Looking good Brian....No nits here...Fab details on the bird...I have also been thinking about the R5..or even the R6(apparently better in low light conditions).....which would be better for me .

    Good work

    Always appreciate your words Will! I hear of some issues with the R6 that are not present on the R5. If you see my Loon pic, I shot it in crop mode on the R5 - programmed the front depth of field preview button to be a toggle from FF to crop mode. I presume the effect at 1.6 crop would come out the same as shooting the R6, but there might be some IQ differences I'm not aware of.
