Cormorant in Drainage Pipe Shadow for Shadow Shot Sunday

Earlier this week we had visited my favourite pond area hoping to get pictures of a Great Blue Heron that we knew was there. The heron we saw but it flew off as soon as it saw us. A moment later, a Cormorant flew in within camera range . I was hoping it would swim inside the huge drainage pipe's shadow there and it did creating a lovely scene for Shadow Shot Sunday.
My appreciative thanks to Tracey, at Hey Harriet, the host of Shadow Shot Sunday for this interesting idea; for more information on this shadow meme,please click on the icon in the side bar

These are lovely! Your link isn't working in Mr Linky. There must be a typo in the url because it's not actually a link. It doesn't go anywhere. I think it happened the other week also but I didn't realise until I closed the Mr Linky for that week. I'll delete it now and re-enter and see if it works :)

Yup. All good now!

Those are really cool shots. Especially the top one, with the water at the very top. It took me a while (plus looking at the next one) to figure it out!
