These birds, while not really shy never cooperate with photographers either. I was surprised to catch this series to cleanly.
The Anhinga helped me by coming in slow, and low. I was impressed how she used her tail during the landing. She dropped it down and used it as drag. Really impressive since it was obviously part of the routine.
Anhinga fish under water, and here that was the plan.
There are multiple photographs so I have used a gallery to organize them. Click any image to view the series.

That must have been quite difficult to get this series of wonderful photographs. Congratulations Ted!
The difficult part is to have a space open enough to get the images. Trees, Spanish Moss, etc. are always in the way. Thanks.
Great capture of the action! You were at the perfect angle and saw her coming!
Timing is everything LOL
