Great shots, I have found them as hard to get the exposure right as white birds, nice job

Yes, some here call them snake birds. They have no oil on their feathers so when they swim the top of their back is just under water and all you see is a curved neck above the water. They will sper a fish on the end of their bill, flip it in the air, catch and swallow it.
