Default Anhinga Gluttony

Did this Anhinga make a catch too big to swallow. Amazing how the mouth and throat expand.

That's cool Ed, those diving birds are amazing and so are the shots. I got a similar sequence of a Cormorant, don't want to steal you post but here is one shot. It also got it's dinner.

It's neck looks too thin to be able to swallow something like that! Amazing!

Ed, ever since I was a kid, I called these things snakebirds. Maybe this is why they have that nickname.

Another fantastic series Ed. I agree that the neck looks too narow to be able to swallow that fish.

I was born in Florida and also called them snake birds. They got that nickname because their feathers have no oil on them to assist in floating. When they are swimming all you see is the long thin neck sticking out of the water.
