Anhinga anhinga, 29 February 2020

Anhinga anhinga, the Anhinga;
Lake county, Florida (29 February 2020).

The Anhinga is a regional favorite for me. Though I may be into scales a bit more than proper feathers, Anhingas truly are terrific. They’re fantastic swimmers and carry the nickname the “snakebird.” Once back out of the water, they’ll dry their feathers out by holding their wings up and outward in a classic angel pose. This one had already dried off but was enjoying its perch all the same.
