Little Pied Cormorant (Microcarbo melanoleucos) Photographed at Ramsgate Sydney. It took quite a while to get this shot. Every time I tried to reposition myself the bird looked nervous so I had to stand still and shoot through layers of swaying Casuarina branches. Finally locked on using 'back button' focus. (Actually 'side of lens button' focus with this particular lens).

Little Pied Cormorant (Microcarbo melanoleucos) "The Little Pied Cormorant is one of the most common of Australia's waterbirds, occurring on water bodies of almost any size. It is entirely black above and white below. The face is dusky and, in adult birds, the white of the underside extends to above the eye. Immature birds resemble the adults except there is no white above the eye."

Photographed in Ramsgate, Sydney Australia

Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute is one of the most important religious buildings in Venice. Its striking dome is depicted in most of the city’s postcards.

Salute, as it is commonly known, was founded in 1631. The basilica was built to commemorate the end of a terrible outbreak of the plague that began in 1630, and killed a large portion of the Veneto population. It was dedicated to Our Lady of Health (Salute in Italian).

The architect, Baldassare Longhena, was commissioned to design the church and had also been responsible for the construction of the Ca’ Rezzonico. Santa Maria della Salute took 56 years to build and was completed in 1687.
