Just came back from China. What a wonderful country; so many photos to be taken! I took this one of the cormorant fisherman by the Li River, near Yangshuo. I did some research before I went so I had a pretty good idea how cormorant fishing worked, but had no idea how fast those birds are. They’ll dive after a fish to catch it, but since the fishermen ties a snare around it’s throat it cannot swallow a large fish. Rather, it holds the fish in its throat and coughs it up when the fisherman brings the bird back to the boat. It was pretty cool to watch!
