I googled the name as I had never heard of it, and learned that there are many similarities with a cormorant. Thanks for posting, Lowell!
I did not know what an anhinga is, so this is what Wikipedia has to say : The anhinga (/ænˈhɪŋɡə/; Anhinga anhinga), sometimes called snakebird, darter, American darter, or water turkey, is a water bird of the warmer parts of the Americas. The word anhinga comes from the Brazilian Tupi language and means devil bird or snake bird. When swimming the origin of the name snakebird is apparent: only the colored neck appears above water so the bird looks like a snake ready to strike. They do not have external nares (nostrils) and breathe solely through their epiglottis.
Cool shot, Lowell !
Are you sure that's not a cousin of the Loch Ness monster?
I just saw your comment on my site. Those cowboy steak places have been closed. There is not much left out that way of those old rustic places.
Just beautiful! Who needs telly with nature like this?
Beautiful photo, Lowell!!!
Lawdy, your photographs can make even Florida look good!
A wonderful image Lowell. Never heard of that kind of bird. It says that it resembles a snake when it swims. I guess he has the power to scare other birds and people away. :)
Never seen one of these -- they're not in these parts -- though its profile looks a little like a cormorant...not that I'm much of a birder.
A super photograph and so worthy of framing.
