Very nice, glad to get some images. this is another species I knew nothing about. I assume everyone heeded the no swimming warning.

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
