Today’s Flashback Photo
What IS it about the Cormorant (I think I’ve got that right) that fascinates me so? I’m trying to remember what you said it was–getting old and forgetful.) Almost totally submerged, neck almost like a Loch Ness monster kind of thing, with a huge fish that must keep it fed for a week! Beautiful green emerald eye.
And I have to ask (I’m such a city person) what is that in the 4th picture that looks like a bug of some kind. I have no clue. Is it something edible or “buggy”? I am in need of learning. MCS
The cormorants are fascinating. Swimming under water to catch fish. Swallowing such large catches with ease. The eye is like a jewel. That is a crayfish or crawdad as I call it. Saw it crossing the road when I got close it reared up in a defensive position waving its claws. Miniature lobsters is what they look like. They can be good to eat if found in clean water. They are food for a lot of birds as well as mink and racoon.
I’m surprised the foxes didn’t snap that crayfish right up!
Great shots of the cormorant and quail!
New Hampshire Gardener,
The fox probably would have if they spotted it. Thank You.
