Anhinga, Florida Everglades NP

Having developed an impression of what the Florida Everglades looked like and then finding myself in Florida several weeks ago, I had to go see it for myself. But it was not quite what my preconceived notions had set me up for. That said, it was different but great. Much more open than I expected and lots of birds. I am not a bird photographer, but given willing subjects, such as this Anhinga posing with wings spread (apparently for drying them) within easy reach, how could I resist. - JW
