Different views on the Cape Cormorant

The Cape Cormorant (Phalacrocorax capensis. Fam. Phalacrocoracidae) is a common sea bird along the Southern coast of South Africa. Usually they sit on rocks along the shore. Fairly easy to approach but not closer than 7-8 meters before they get restless and migrate to another rock.

I made several pictures of the group and processed these, except for one image (=as is) in different ways in Photoshop. Not sure which photo to choose for this post so I publish them all.

Ghost Cultivator

What happens if you merge the flower of a Cape Honeysuckle (Tecoma capensis) with an early morning landscape?

Wonder if that is not a ghost cultivating the land… (?)…. 🙂
