While walking Canes Major and Minor (the same walk where this happened), my wife and I were circumnavigating a lake when I saw a cormorant sitting on a branch sticking out into the water. I love birds, and I thought it would make a nice shot.
Well, that came out a lot better than I expected! The cormorant is tough to see, so click that to get the high-res version. I like how the lake was so still you can see the reflection of the bird, and of course the magnificent Boulder icons of the Flatirons looming in the background.
Hard to believe I took that with my iPhone 4S!
