Hi Ed,

Great series!!!

There's such a disconnect between the texture of the fluffy baby down bodies and the alien-looking heads and feet. They just don't seem to fit my image of "chicks", but that's just my perceptual handicap. . .

Very good captures and very nicely done.

Scott

I was thinking the same thing as Scott - they sure look strange compared to the adults, not at all what I would have expected. Their feet just don't fit with their bodies at all!

Nothing like some regurgitated fish for lunch.

Excellent captures. I see the anhinga adults quite often, but have never seen a chick.
