Saturday's Critters


This anhinga was camouflaged pretty well and sitting on the other side of a pond, so I had to zoom in to get this shot. It was sitting pretty low to the ground, not stretching out its neck, until I decided to whistle at it. As soon as I did that, up went the head and I snapped this picture.

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

Hello, the Anhinga is a cool bird. Their necks seem pretty long. Great shot. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

You know how to get someone's attention for sure! I would have looked up, too! :) Thanks for your comment, Lois. Our governor is truly one of most evil or many evil people in charge of things - think governors in Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Arizona, Louisiana, New Jersey, etc. It's all very discouraging!

Wishing you a great weekend!

It's always so satisfying when one's method and technique works! Good job!
