Seeing photos of an Anhinga is a treat.

They can be fun to watch too! I spent many hours when I first moved in here just watching them.

A couple relatively close shots of an Anhinga drying his wings, taken in Naples FL. Anhingas really do get wet and so have to hang out their wings to dry.

So a spotting scope-(digiscoped) can take photos also?
I think the canon has better color in the photos than the digiscope. They look more muted.

Sage I see every feather is lifted when they sit to dry. Those are very nice close ups.

Beautiful bird. The only angina I knew about was a medical condition. . . . This is much better
