|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The Anhinga lacks oils to water proof its feathers, and must dry them in the sun. It dives down through the water to eat fish, frogs and even alligator hatchlings.|
Three to six eggs at a time, and both are incubated by the mail and female.
Taken at the Everglades National Park.

Excellent photo shot in a back-light situation,
fine POV and framing, the focus is excellent
but is done more on the bird's chest than
his eye and head, the background is beautiful,
here I love the back-light effect with a light
contour doing the bird's chest and neck, TFS

I have never seen one of these birds in the wild, only in photos. I have to admit they do have some unique looking features such as their snake like looking head while in the water and a body which somewhat resembles a turkey. You have done a nice job of photographing this particular bird.
