Can you do this with your neck??
 
Hey Guys: A few more Anhinga shots. I have very few snakebird shots, as they do not tend to stay near people. They visit my pond a lot, but always stay on the other side, rarely getting close enough to get a good shot. I got this one while walking around a marsh near my house one evening. 200mm at 400 ISO. Got him thru the trees, and I am fortunate that he didn't fly away.

Anyway, his poses struck me as kind of funny looking, and you know how much I like that kind of shot. (okay, no remarks about my weird sense of humor.)

Yes...and you have a weird sensa Yuma.

I was trying to be funny there but like Ziggy said they're good shots of an awkward bird. One I haven't seen before.

Great lighting and exposure on the images. The first image is especially good as it frames the bird very well. Very sharp too.

And no, I can't do that with my neck - nor would want to.:D

Thanks for the comments guys, though I'm not sure about my weird "sensa Yuma." LOL. :)

Compared to my other bird shots, this is just one of those birds that rarely gives me the opportunity to photograph at a reasonably close enough distance. (Only the Osprey gives me fewer possible shots, and I've commented on that in Zig's recent post.)

Nice capture. I just don't see much of a difference between photos 2 & 3.

Hi Tullio: yes you are right, they are only slightly different, as the photos were taken back to back in two quick shots in the burst mode. I have so few shots of this type of bird that I probably overlooked the fact that I could have posted one less shot.

And since you didn't, you wasted at least 10 seconds out of each of our busy lives. Jeeeez.

My wife did it for me after she discovered the last lens I bought. YIKES! That hurt! ;)
