Anhinga Setting Up House

Certainly not an award winner here yet even getting this type of photograph is not an easy thing. Anhinga built nests in the same rookeries as Herons and Egrets. However, they start around the time Egrets have almost settled in.

That small difference in time frame makes for problems. The trees are starting to leaf out.

Once that starts there are few open opportunities for a clear photograph.

Swamp To Shore, Pelican

In the Lowcountry we are blessed with having the ability to photograph marshlands, swamps, and the shore. It’s all right here.

The other day it was a time for shore, Pelicans, and shrimpers.

The Brown Pelicans didn’t disappoint. Prehistoric, but oh so agile.

Taken at my usual Pelican spot, on the shrimp boat pier. I can stand there and take my pick of fly by shots.

If I don’t get a few good ones it’s nobody’s fault but mine.
