If your flair in fashions favors green goggles and corrugated tail feathers, you will just love the Anhinga.
Male in breeding plumage.
This is a classic pose, as this female Anhinga dries her wings.
This is an exciting encounter that I had with an Anhinga at Green Cay Wetlands in Palm Beach County (Two minute slide show). If you cannot see the video, try this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNIvDIk09uk&feature=player_detailpage
Back near home in our local wetlands, I watched as this Anhinga took on a big fish (one minute slideshow). If the video does not display here, try this link:
Caring for a hungry chick.
Anhingas are very graceful in flight.
As I walked the trail along a canal where the water was only about two feet deep, I saw an Anhinga splashing noisily ahead of me. It was disturbed by my presence and took flight down the path away from me.
Ii suddenly made a U-turn and headed down the path straight at me. I know this was a deliberate hostile act.
Look out below! The cascade of excrement missed my shoulder by inches.
