Photographer's Note

taken at Yangshuo, Guilin, China.

Cormorant fishing is a tradition that dates back hundreds of years in China and Japan, and is also practiced in Macedonia.

The birds are taken by the fisherman at a young age and become bonded to him. They catch fish according to natural instincts but are prevented from swallowing all but the smallest fish by a ring placed around their neck during the fishing.

Cormorrant fishing is still popular among locals of Guilin, particularly Yangshuo town.
