Cormorant take off: hop, lunge, hop .... then lift off

I got these pics of a Double-crested Cormorant as it started to take off, an effort that involves 'hopping' (with both feet) across the water for some ways before the lift off. I think it kinda looks like it was actually doing a swan dive not a take-off. SeEtta
