A tiny coastal village on the coast of Peru was home to a mass of seabirds waiting for the fishing boats to come back into the local harbour. They were then fed on the scraps left by local women, as they cleaned and prepared the fish. The birds mixed freely and the cormorant stood drying its wings at the front of the boat, as though he was aware he was safe and part of the local world.
