This week I decided to spend the week after Christmas and New Years with my daughters in Ohio. So today I’m traveling and when I took this picture I was somewhere in between point “A” and point “B”. I’ve really been looking forward to this trip, as are my daughters and my grand-daughter. Should be a blast. Happy New Year everyone!
I took a picture of this Anhinga last Saturday (here) afternoon while it was waiting to dry out its feathers. This bird’s feather become waterlogged after foraging underwater and afterwards has to dry out. Unlike the cormorant which can come above water and take off immediately. Usually the Anhinga fans out all of its feathers for drying, unfortunately this bird couldn’t oblige.
