I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
This anhinga fishing in the marsh pond yesterday afternoon might look like he’s having a fun time but fishing is serious business.
The fact that anhingas will flip a fish off their sharp bill and catch it head first in mid air is just an added bonus that makes dinner prep a bit more entertaining! 🙂
Very good! Superb action shots, Phil!
Thanks for checking them out Gareth, I appreciate it!
Very nice Phil!!
Thanks, glad you liked them!
Thats just amazing!
Anhingas fishing is one of my all time favorite bird actions to watch and photograph. They are amazing!
I’m happy you enjoyed them Pat!
Wow. Awesome images!
Thanks a million for looking and commenting I appreciate it!
Perfect timing!!!! The shots are amazing and that you caught the moment…awesome.
I really like watching these guys fish and if I get a shot, that’s just the icing on the cake. Thanks much!
Perfect timed shots. *thumbs up*
Hey I appreciate that, thank you!
Beautiful pictures, Phil!
Thank you for the kind comment Maggie and good to hear you liked seeing the always entertaining anhinga!
Such great action photographs! They are really something, the way they flip their meals so that they go down smoothly!
They are amazing birds and it’s right up there with my top favorite wildlife actions to photograph. These guys rarely fail to entertain! 🙂
You continue to catch those wonderful shots. I suppose head first makes it easier to swallow but it makes view a lot tougher for the fish.
Oooo I had not thought about the view the fish must have. Yikes! Scary to think about. But so it goes in nature I suppose. That fish probably ate some smaller fish earlier in the day.
Thanks for checking these out.
Amazing shots, Phil. Other than that, I’m not saying another word. 🙂
Heh heh, I hear you loud and clear Sylvia, and trust me, I actually spared you some of the more, shall we say… dramatic?!…closeups. 🙂
Well, those are totally awesome images. You are very good! Take a lot of practice to shoot those shots and also in focus. Well done.
