    Not a very good shot but too funny not to share.

    OOOMpfff ! @*&"%$@#* thats my caption. Those cormorants, they can fly and they can swim.... but land and trees are not their most graceful mediums. I find it hard to catch them in moments like this. Did he slip off the perch or miss landing the perch?

    He totally missed the landing. I was panning him coming in and he just flat missed it with on foot and got hung up. There was a few more braches in the way that I trimmed which he tumbled through befor he could regain flight. No they are not graceful with those huge web feet when it comes to branches. I am amazed that the spend as much time in them as they do.

    It was later determined that Charlie was flying under the influence and was herring impaired.

    "I know that other branch was there before- I bet the *&%^()* down there with the camera cloned it out! I suppose you think that's fuunny, well, let me tell you, there are ways of getting revenge...."

    or

    "Why does there always have to be someone with a camera whenever one humiliates oneself? Then they send it to 'You've been Framed' just to add insult to injury."

    Missed by that much!

    Great capture. I reckon you could do a little PP and bring out some highlights to make it a really great photo

    Thanks everyone!

    Thanks Mal, unfortunately it is a pretty big crop and I did quite a bit to get it this far, it doesn't have much room left. Not bad for a show & tell but that is about it.

    Some shots have such great subjects that the technical quality really dosn't matter much at all. I feel that this is one of those shots and I would have been proud to have taken it. Well done, Paul!
