With poise and composure, a male Anhinga patiently surveys the shallow wetlands, ready to dive at the first approach of a suitable meal. Photographed in Boynton Beach, Florida, November 1, 2014. Higher resolution versions of this photo can be viewed at 500px.com.
I really love the colors in this. The shot of tropical warmth is particularly welcome this morning!
Thank you, Melissa, for such kind words—glad to do my part (however small) in tempering the frosty weather throughout the rest of the US. 🙂
Beautiful shot, Kenn. The composition is perfect.
I could disagree heartily with your assessment of perfection, dear George, but you are far more skilled than I, so I’ll offer instead a humble, heartfelt thank you. 🙂
Dang, dude! Great shot! I just keep wondering, “Why does everyone else live in an interesting place and I don’t?!’
Thank you, John—as always, you are too kind. Funny, every time I travel outside my own region, I marvel at how photogenic “elsewhere” is compared to where I live. I think some of us shutterbugs have a weakness for change of scenery.
Stunning photo, Kenn!
Thank you, Tiny!
A beautiful capture!
Thank you, Pat—much appreciated!
Great capture! Who knew that species had so many colors in the wing feathers. They always just look either brown or black when I see them in the wild.
Thank you, Ken! They are all predominantly black, but the males have that greenish-bluish aspect which the right light can highlight—I got lucky with the light. Glad you like the shot.
Everything escapes me except WOW WOW WOW! Great shot, Kenn!! Just WOW! Love, Amy
Amy, your encouragement is always so inspiring—thank you, my friend! 🙂
You are most welcome!!! 🙂 xx Amy

Gorgeous bird. Great job!
Thank you, Lucy—much appreciated!
Very nice. I really like your framing of this image. I get a clear sense of the bird readying to fly into the water for a meal.
Much thanks, Tim—he was focused like a laser, which made it easy for me to snap away at several different angles. Glad you like this one.
Kenn you are welcome as always.
Thank you, Carol—so glad you like it.
What a gorgeous creature, Kenn!
Those colors are magical.
Wishing you a wonderful week ahead.
Thank you, Lisa—as always! Wishing you a wonderful week, too.
