Anhinga Drying Wings
We saw quite a few Anhingas at Lake Woodruff_NWR and got quite a few images of them for the couple of days we were there. This one had been fishing in the water and you can see it is shaking off some water drops above the beak on the featured image. It seems amazing they can hold on to branches with those large webbed feet. When they look right at you they seem to have a small head for such a large body. When fishing they use that sharp beak to spear their pray. Most of these images are of the female Anhinga.
Male Anhinga that was off to one side
Lovely colour and detail! We don’t see them here, an unusual bird.
Thanks Belinda! They are unusual! But fun to watch and photograph!
Great shots, Reed! Love the details!!
Thanks Donna! They were mostly in trees. It is more fun to watch them fish!
I agree, I’ve got some fishing photos coming up in next week to two, when I get to them, lol.
It’s interesting to see those webbed feet gripping the branches.
Yes! It is interesting to see those feet wrapped on a branch holding on!
