A male anhinga in full mating plumage. The green marking around his eye indicates he is completely ready for mating. Photographed at Shark Valley in the Everglades in Florida. Look at this in the largest sizes to see the detail around his eye and his "hairdo." This shot is another taken on our recent trip to the Everglades. The anhingas are one of my favorite birds of that area. Enjoy your Saturday! I'm going to my grandson's 9th birthday party! At least, if the snowstorm misses us. Thanks to all you smugmuggers and others for your comments on my little blue heron shot. I sure enjoyed looking at all your fabulous shots...and there were certainly a bunch that qualified as FABULOUS!
