Every year, the Brant’s Cormorants build nests about 6 feet below the sidewalk at La Jolla Cove, on a little ledge on the cliff face. The ledge is almost too close for comfortable photography, and is overhung by brush and shaded along most of its length, but still it is too tempting to pass up. This Brant’s is displaying on the nest…I am not exactly sure who it was trying to impress. Sony RX10iv at 600mm. Program mode. 1/250th @ ISO 250 @ f4. Processed in Polarr.
