Anhinga on Mangrove Roots

The Anhinga was a common sight in the mangrove swamps of southern Florida. Typically those we saw were posed much as this one with its back to the sun and wings outspread as though to soak up the heat. Since it was February at the time, this may have been the situation.

The insert shows a bit more clearly its markings and characteristic pose.


We took this picture from the Pelican on our boat tour.
