I was on holidays in PEI when I took this picture. I was at a wharf in Tracadie Bay when this cormorant popped up in front of me and then disappeared again. I decided to wait and see if it would come up again and it did but this time with a flounder in its beak. He fought with it for a while and then in one gulp it was gone!
