Anhinga

I haven’t been able to get out much recently and have missed visiting my feathered friends.  So I was excited to grab my camera and stop by Huntington Beach State Park earlier this week.

Of all the birds I’ve photographed, I enjoy the anhingas the most.  They have such personality.  They take glory in the sun with outstretched wings yet can be as silly as a small child the next moment.

The anhinga in these photos flew over and literally belly-flopped in the water in front of me.  Unfortunately, I had my camera trained on a second bird and I missed that shot.  But I did get these photos as he dried himself off.
