Anhinga:  Viera Wetlands

No Florida wetlands bird shoot would be complete with out photographing Anhingas.  Found around lakes and wetlands, anhingas are frequently seen perched often with wings half spread.  I photographed this bird during the golden glow of sunset.

Immature Anhinga:  Viera Wetlands

Noticing movement on a palm trunk a closer look revealed an immature anhinga.  This photo was captured at sundown as well.

Anhinga with Catfish:  Circle B Bar Reserve

Walking along a hiking path at the Circle B Bar Reserve we spotted this anhinga struggling with its catch.  Although the catfish is quite small the anhinga repositioned it a number of times before swallowing; apparently out of concern for its dagger sharp fins.

What a beautiful bird. The feathers are so soft looking that they appear to be fur.
