Little Shag (Phalacrocorax Melanoleucos)

Our skies were rather grey recently – featureless above and below the horizon. Luckily I found an interesting subject to stand out on this background when I visited Cornwallis the other day. This Little Shag (Little Pied Cormorant for Australians) was unusually cooperative, letting me approach quite close. As I walked back from the end of the wharf, I met it again and got the picture below.
