Anhinga Panorama

We saw quite a few Anhingas when we were at the Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge. Most were females and easy to identify with their brownish neck. After fishing in and under the water they like to dry their wings in the pose above and below. They will stay with their wings stretched out for quite a while. The featured image is a 2 image panorama taken with a Tamron 150-600mm lens @ 600mm. Anhingas swim with their bodies partly or mostly submerged and their long, snakelike neck held partially out of the water. After a swim they perch on branches or logs to dry out, holding their wings out and spreading their tails. They frequently soar high in the sky, riding on thermals much like raptors and vultures.
