Portraits Of A Perched Anhinga
Earlier this weekend I was surprised to see this anhinga come swooping in and land on the end of a branch that was sticking out of the marsh pond just below my position. It had a heck of a time trying to balance itself on the very tip of the branch and I thought it had no shot…but…sure enough it managed to steady itself fairly well. The bird ended up staying perched there for about two minutes before it took off. I had just enough time to grab a couple shots of this anhinga who clearly thought he was striking a couple of elegant poses for his portrait pics!
