I told 'em it's too rough for fishin'

Tacking Point NSW: Wild, wind driven surf at Tacking Point in early morning. Compression effect of telephoto lens emphasises splashing foam and seaspray in foreground.

A Little Pied Cormorant (Microcarbo melanoleucos) mocks the decision of a pair of Australasian Gannets (Morus serrator) to go out fishing in such poor conditions.

But the gannets are at home amongst the wind and waves. Superb mariners.
