Nature is amazing. Cormorant are birds that can fly and also swim around underwater for minutes catching fish. They are somewhat similar to penguins in their ability to swim but then retain the ability to fly.

Cormorants are also domesticated by people - with nooses around their neck to prevent them from swallowing the fish they catch. They go off and fish and bring the catch back to their owners.

This one was fishing in the early morning as I watched the sunrise at Angkor Wat.
