The Noon Flight
The anhinga mid day flight arrived at the marsh yesterday afternoon right on time. He was able to get in some fishing, but not as much as he would have liked because several alligators (including this lurker) were already set up at the best spots.
A bird such as an anhinga that fishes by swimming very fast under the water has to be careful of what he might bump into out there!
As usual impeccable photography!
I greatly appreciate that, thank you!
And those lurkers have sinister eyes – great shots. I turned into an accidental lurker once. I was sitting in my kayak watching the beavers swim around. One beaver started swimming toward me and didn’t seem to notice the red kayak. He banged into the kayak with a thud, slapped his tail and completely drenched me. My wife thot this particularly funny.
I’m surprised to hear the beaver was so ill mannered, they have a lot of nerve. I’ve had an alligator bang his head down against the water at me but you kind of expect that from them as they can be rather impulsive. Nice that your wife got a laugh out of you getting drenched by the smart aleck beaver, I suspect Alyce’s reaction would be similar.
Wonderful set another time Phil 🙂
Have a great day
Thank you very much Sophie, so glad you liked these!
Not something you’d want to bump into accidentally. Lyle’s little story cracked me up, too! You two are a barrel of laughs!
Until I heard Lyle’s story I never knew beavers had such rotten attitudes. 🙂 I guess they are not like the cartoon characters either.
Rotten attitudes or poor navigational skills.
Ormai so benissimo che sei più che bravo, molto molto di più, eppure ogni volta mi lasci senza fiato con i tuoi scatti.
Hey Grazie Pat!
Thanks for checking them out and glad you liked ’em.
Superb shots, Phil.
He needs the warning like the one in Hill Street Blues “Be careful out there!”
Streamlined and beautiful! I can see that would work so well for underwater fishing!
I don’t believe I have seen an aerial shot of a commorant or shag before very ungainly in the air considering how good swimmers they are.
