I took this photo whilst i was on my travels documenting the coast of the Scottish Island of Arran. Here, a group of Cormorants rest and socialise on a tiny island of rock, just off the coast at Corrie. This rock is well-known by the islanders, as there are always Cormorants perched upon it. There is no other rock around the Island where this occurs.
The rock provides sanctuary for the local population of Cormorants. It allows them to 'rest' safely, knowing that they cannot be attacked by land predators.
As i drew closer to take this photo the nearest Cormorant started to use threatening behaviour in order to keep me at bay. I am happy that i was able to capture one such moment within the frame.
