This is another Double-crested Cormorant with a Shad I photographed while at Robert S. Kerr Reservoir (Kerr Dam) near Sallisaw, Oklahoma. It is getting the fish in position to swallow before the Gulls flying above it steal it. This all happens within seconds.
Here is the other photo I posted: Double-crested Cormorant Swallowing Shad
How I Got The Shot – Double-crested Cormorant With A Shad
I was near the Dam on the southeast side sitting near the edge of the water in the large rocks with my tripod and camera. I was using a Canon EOS-1D Mark III camera with a Canon EF500mm f/4L IS USM lens.
