Nice Eye Makeup
I saw another anhinga this morning at the edge of the marsh and I quickly noticed the distinctive ultramarine eye shadow look.
What this means is that this boy (yes it’s a male) is entering into breeding condition. He likely has a girlfriend stashed nearby which I will quite likely see later in the Spring.
They are quite stylish too! 😃
The eye makeup is really WOW, but the hairstyle is right up there too. 🙂
Yeah I would ordinarily consider the eye makeup a bit over the top, but combine it with that hair style and it fits right in.
Thanks so much!
Very handsome… with those neck feathers he also looks like he stuck his bill in an electrical socket – or maybe swallowed an electric eel..?! Another great series, Phil!
It’s funny, some of these birds are really laid back and others get all in a twist over every little thing. Sorta like some people I guess. :-). Thanks!
What a ladykiller!
He’s got style for sure!
Bellissimi questi primi piani, l’occhio è bellissimo!!
Hi Pat! Grazie! 😀
Cool. I’d seen those Anhinga eyes when I lived in Florida, but didn’t realize it changed with the mating season. Your photos are now educational as well as spectacular.
It’s mostly the male anhinga that has these eye colors, I think the female’s feathers fluff up a bit and they get brighter but the males get this aqua color which is attractive. 🙂
Stunning! – as so many of your photos are!
I appreciate that thank you Judy!
Very handsome and I think his girlfriend will be impressed!
Yeah this guys got it goin on and should indeed impress the girlfriend. 😀
Where can we get that shade of blue? Great photos
I understand these colors are all the rage in Paris this year! 🙂
Thanks much for looking!
Excellent captures, Phil! Thanks!
I’m happy you enjoyed seeing the anhinga photos! Thanks
I bet the females are drooling over this guy. Wonderful photos, Phil.
Oh yeah, this boy will have to fight them off! 😀
Nice “featherdo” too.
Yeah this guy really is the total package!
Nice details in the eye. I like his spiky hair.
He does have some snappy hair going on there!
Those are not Bette Davis eyes. They are quite the lookers though.
I guess they get the job done, I’m sure he has a girlfriend somewhere. 🙂
Amazing eye color. Our anhingas in Costa Rica don’t get that colorful. Great pics!
Thanks very much for checking these out, glad you like the anhinga pics!
Such great clear shots of these beautiful eyes- wonderful exposure!
Thanks very much for checking this out and glad you liked seeing the anhinga!
Love the makeup and hair, great shots, not to mention the colors…:-)
He certainly is quite the stylish boy!
The boys naturally have the good looks – pity it’s not like that in real life 😳
Beautiful shots of a beautiful bird!
