So, I’m standing watching this Anhinga walk across this old ramp.
Watching one, doing nothing, is not very exciting. I even decided to photograph her doing nothing. Even less exciting.
Except for one small thing, Anhinga can’t walk. That’s right. Short stubby legs, in the wrong place! Also really big floppy web feet, they’re huge.
What happens! She slips, on a flat board.
Water is splashing and she is a fraction of a second from falling in.
Just like a person, she recovers, looks around, and then pretends nothing happened at all.
Except I was photographing and didn’t let up on the shutter. Now it’s public for all to see.
