Double-crested Cormorant

This might be my absolute favorite photo. There are 3 cormorants that fish close to my house, a male, female and a juvenile. I have approached them slowly over time and now they allow me within arms reach and feel comfortable enough with me to turn their back when I am close even though they are very skittish if someone else approaches them. In this shot, I specifically used a narrow depth of field to bring the eyes of the viewer directly to the mesmerizing blue eyes of this beautiful bird.
