That Time Of Year…
I saw this female anhinga, right, quietly standing on a rock in the marsh this afternoon drying off her wings and minding her own business. So she certainly appeared shocked at first when a male anhinga suddenly hopped up out of the water and joined her on the same rock.
At first I thought an argument and a fight would quickly erupt, but that was not at all the case. Apparently she liked the looks of this guy and seemed fine with not only letting him share her rock, but they immediately started making eyes at each other.
It’s possible an anhinga love connection was made right there on the spot!
I wonder now if this will forever be ‘their’ rock, the place where it all started? 🙂
True love on a small rock – just precious. What a great tale of romance this is, Phil!
They were quite the pair! You never know either because I’m as likely to see a brawl as a love connection. 🙂
Well done phil for capturing so clearly natures eternal dance! Regards from Thom at the immortal jukebox.
Hey Thom, thanks a million for checking these out and commenting, I appreciate it!
A pleasure. When you have time give the Jukebox a whirl!
Hey just checked it out! Cool! I love music!
Hope you find lots to enjoy!
Always I wonder what will be next… It is exciting for me. Because I know, you will come back again with something new, and extraordinary. Here it is again… How beautiful compositions you captured dear Phil, these are great photographs. I loved them all. But as I told before, I will say it again, I do admire the patient behind all these photographs… You are great photographer. Thank you, love, nia
Thank you very much for your kind words Nia and I’m so happy you enjoy the photos!
How sweet is that?
Normally I see more arguments then anything and was shocked when they ended up sharing the rock.
Love conquers all?
I guess so.
Looks like she’s already “marked” the rock.
Ha! Yes she sure has ! Well, when ya gotta go…
These are great pics!!! Never saw birds like these, you have so much nature where you are….great captures!!!
We are lucky to have not just an interesting variety of wildlife, but a lot of it is close in for best viewing!
Great photos. True love, feather style.
It sure looks like love!
What a cozy place for romance! I like the female in this case. She looks rather nice in her sable colored stole. Great photos Phil.
Yes the female does look particularly attractive here. The males are funny when wet because as they dry and begun to fluff up, their feathers look more like cat fur.
Amazing pictures and what a great story they tell!
I’m so happy you enjoyed the photos and story, thanks!
Love’s young dream!
I think they are both youngsters. Must be Spring. 😀
