Anhinga, a quick slideshow

I recently had an encounter with several Anhinga, which are difficult to discern from a Cormorant. The Anhinga has a bill which is very effective at spearing fish, as opposed to the hooked bill of a Cormorant used to catch and hold.

Just a short 20 shot slideshow of this beautiful bird.
