UPY 2018 Behaviour - Winner
'The Fisherman' - Filippo Borghi

In winter time in the Izu peninsula in tokio area the asiatic cormorant stop for couple of month before moving to China. So this is the best moment for try to shoot this amazing sea bird during diving and fishing. I Was in this area and I spent two days in a very shallow waters from 5m to 8m waiting for the opportunity to take a right moment for have this photos. Luckily four birds for two days stay in this aera in search of sardine and don't care about my presence during his diving session give me the chance to sort it.

Judge's comment: Filippo, this is one of my top four images in this years competition of UPY. Flawless in every way. Congratulations! Martin Edge
