    Gale you are too much! Great anhinga shot. And I'm certainly glad to know all that wonderful scientific background stuff. NOT! And we weren't that far behind you.....

    lololol Gordon,

    I did not know the correct spelling of this bird so looled it up on the on-line dictionary. Thought what the heck, I will get the info on it as well.

    Thanks
