    a strange bird the way they are like fish and eat fish, this time of year they get their breeding plumage on and I think they are beauties but they need a lot of lot and wind helps also

    yea way more, these have so much more color and contrast they are very photogenic
  4. Nice series. I've never seen one of these except in pictures.
  5. These are fascinating! I saw my first anhinga in Florida and was amazed by not just the bird's physical appearance but the behavior...really an intriguing species!

    That third photo.....for some reason it just makes me chuckle! Beautifully's just the bird's expression and....that hair! LOL!!!

    Thanks Connie
    The wind was blowing hard
  7. You were fortunate to be right on the spot when the wind was blowing so that you could capture different perspectives and looks of an Anhinga than we usually see.....
  8. Love Anhingas, superb shots.

    thanks William
    thanks roger, these are anahingas
    thx Roy
    They have great looking eyes, I'll stop to just get a good face/eye shot
    I suspect the eye color diffs are due to plumage
    Thanks buddy
