South African photo safari – cormorants

These photos were taken at Cape Point, one of the southernmost points of Africa (the actual honour belong to Cape Agulhas several miles to the east). This area is periodically wracked with strong winds and so it was when we visited. Nonetheless, that didn’t stop these kamikaze cormorants from trying to fly among the turbulent waters.

We found these cormorants at a different location – the pier to Robben Island, the infamous prison island where Nelson Mandela and other political prisoners were kept.
