Default Anhinga Pictures

Posting some of these just so Havalotta can see what an Anhinga looks like and how he acts.

They like to sit in the tops of trees and notice how the female is not all black but had brown on her head and neck...

Well I found you. THANKS They look heavy as they take off. Is that a tail or feet behind them.
I see I'm not the only one to take photos through a binocular lenze. I'm guessing that is how you did that circular one?

I shot that one through a spotting scope. It's called digiscoping. As for the tail or feet I think you're seeing the tail.

The type of camera we had was not compatible with a camera mount so I had the joy of holding it up to the scope and moving it around until I found the right spot.

You must have used one of those you mount to a deck for viewing. I've done that with a binoculars and it worked the same way but smaller.

The scope was mounted on a tripod. After struggling with the camera and scope I was lucky enough to receive the digital scope as a present. I still use the digital scope, but it is not good for action shots of any type. The shutter lags by a good half second or so when you press the button. I'm also stuck with one shutter speed on the digital scope. So I use it mainly for still shots that are too far away for my regular camera.
