Anhingas are much like cormorants and they sometimes flock with them. But the anhinga is a more attractive bird. Sometimes they sit with wings spread, perhaps to cool themselves or to expose their body feathers to the sun. Regardless of the reason, it is quite a display. (Taken using a Canon 70-300mm IS lens with polarizer. Adjustments made using Photoshop RAW and CS3 processing.)
