[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.

Hello Chris

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

Hello Chris,
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.
