Here are a few more favorite pictures that I took while visiting the Cape Cod Canal.

Looks like a barge coming through!  (Play on family joke included here – tell me in the comments if you know what I am talking about, or ask me if you are curious!)

I like interesting boat names.  These were two I happened to catch.  I’d like to have a boat someday.

If I remember correctly, I think I tried the panning technique for the “Tunanut” picture.  Not perfect, but not too bad I think.

Cormorant swimming…

Cormorant diving! Kinda  neat shot, isn’t it? I learned an interesting fact about these birds this weekend.  The cormorant is a bird you will often see at the edge of the water sitting with its wings extended.  Apparently, they need to let themselves dry out before they can swim again.  If they let themselves get too saturated, they will sink!  Seems like an odd design flaw for a sea bird.

  2. Lol.. We get quite a few cormorants around here, and I’d wondered about the whole wing spread thing… Mind you, it takes them a lot longer to dry off over here… lol..

    • I got that fact about the cormorants from a friend; I didn’t actually verify it, but he’s a pretty credible guy!
