Cormorant portrait

When I once got a wished-for opportunity to observe and admire this exotic species in Kalmarsund in the 70:s, I didn't imagine those 350 pairs would multiply to 25 000 in a couple of decades and become a pest if you ask the fishermen. As a bird painter I appreciate it as a patient model with wonderful shapes and colors. This is an illustration for the ornithological journal Anser.
