Weekly Photo Challenge: Waiting

Anhinga

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.

    • Actually it feels kind of funny just standing taking picture after picture after picture; I can clearly see he’s annoyed or timid about having something “staring” at them. But this is the only time you can catch them for a photo. Thanks for stopping by.
