Portrait of Anhinga anhinga

To discuss, first log in or sign up (buttons are at top center of page).


There is no way I could have approached this anhinga on foot and get this close, but in my car, I was able to get very close. The anhinga's wings, unlike many water birds, get supersaturated with water, so they often spread their wings on land to help them dry out. Background eliminated in order to make the image look more like a portrait.
