great sighting.very good photo. Looks like you saw it in Virginia Lake. I've never seen one inland. ( in fresh water). I think it is a Double Crested Cormorant.

Yes, saw this one on Virginia Lake. I've seen them there and on QV Lake from time to time. A friend of mine said he looks like he's doing one of those Greek wedding dances, and the other cormorants are just about to smash some plates at his feet. ;-)
