This male Anhinga surfaced nearby and I could see a catch, just not very well.
I followed his path towards an old ramp surprised he didn’t just eat it. There are many around here that will steal the fish, or even grab him while he is occupied. The first image is not great but the story needed it. The rest are better.
After he climbed the ramp I noticed how he still had the fish ‘speared’ on his bill. While most diving birds grab hold of fish, Anhinga spear them underwater. At times they do it a little too good.
Once he figured how to loosen his catch, next was the head first issue. Fish gills can harm a bird, they must be eaten head first.
Finally he did a little fish flip…
A big fish, an even bigger mouth,
