Drifting around the lake, in self isolation.
This anhinga was certainly proud of dinner.
He swam it back into the shadows, and swallowed it in 2 seconds.
I wonder if they actually taste what they are eating- heck he could even eat my wife's cooking.

Thanks all.
As I float along the shoreline I get to watch the light. Especially under the mosses and deep in the shadows, the light comes and goes.
It goes from absolutely breath taking color, to nothing in a few seconds. After spending several days along this area, I am starting to understand where the light will be and when.
I set the stage, and am pleased if like in this case, a player walks by.

Really a nice shot, Gary. Love the light and the water. Interesting that so many of the waders have sharp beaks but only the anhinga actually spears fish with his. Nice job. If I lived where you are I'd live in my kayak this time of year. At least until the bugs ran me inside.

Kayaks are really common here. From my house to these areas is 15-25 min by boat, but about an hour by kayak, at least for me. So I take the boat.
Bugs are not bad yet, give it another month and they will carry you off screaming into the bushes. Then they get really bad. I swear sometimes I need a transfusion.
It looks like there is about 4 more weeks of good nest activities, so lots more boat time.
