so awesome! 'and we have lift-off!' :)
Cool series! He seems to be running on top the water in the second frame. I see these birds all the time, but they're usually stationary. Excellent photography!
awesome shots and i love the title too!
They can only get away with landing on large expanses of water, for something that we take for granted its great to step back and watch what really happens on something as mundane as a take off.... great post Brian.
Great action sequence of the Cormorant. And I LOVE your caption!
Great action series!
Great capture of his method of take off.
hehe, slippery when wet!!i can't tell if he's comin' or goin'!!
Great series of shots. Thank goodness the take-off was a success.
Amazing captures!MersadMersad Donko Photography
A great series of photo captures.
These are splendid flight images Brian, beautiful~
Fantastic lift off shot
Beautiful, beautiful photos.
Brian, I like your title and the photos. Cool captures of the take-off!
Great title. I LOVE your first shot It is one of those I’d like to have hanging here in the house. The splashing behind adds so much to the shot. You are the best :-)
Wonderful to see...
Nice series, Brian!These guys sure can swim, but need a lot of space to take off and land.
I have seen this and even photographed it ... they walk on water. Actually many of the water birds use this method of take off, but not many have been captured by the Brian King Camera ... another great capture ... another page in the book, right? Thanks, Brian ...Andrea @ From The Sol
Love the way the big, heavy waterbirds have to bounce themselves into the air. I suppose wet feathers are no great help in getting airborne either.Nice take-off shots.
Loved the title!A beautiful series of shots capturing the action. The light is lovely on the beak and feather tips in the last shot!Always a pleasure visiting here. :)
Amazing image of the bird taking off from the water surface like some kind of sea plane.
Superb series of shots, Brian! I'm yet to get some clear shots of Cormorants taking off like this!
So FANTASTIC PHOTOGRAPHED Brian...... my compliments.Greetings, Joop
Oh this is surreal. Excellent!
Beautiful photos!Greetings, RW & SK
Great Capture of him running down the wet runway and the lift off!
Just wanted to get back to you re: quality on upload. You mentioned this on a previous post of mine, and I went looking and couldn't find it. Could it be that you can only get to this if you have google+ profile for the blog, and not a blogger profile?
"Huston, we have lift off!"Nice set of shots.I think the issue of sparrows using native nest sites is the same here - and we have a few other pest species issues as well!Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
Perfect captures- I love to watch them land & take off...if I were a bird it would be more of a cannonball!
You always have the BEST pics....and the BEST titles for them!! PERFECT!
Wonder where it's going in such a hurry!!
Great take-off right on time!!
Wonderful captures, Brian!
What a treat to see these photos of birds in flight--so dramatic.
