Anhinga With a Catch

Anhinga fish under water and often bring their catch to the surface and eat while they are swimming, flipping the fish around and swallowing it head first. This fellow may have tried that before climbing onto the alligator ramp.

The ramp seemed like a convenient tool to work the fish free.

I missed the resolution this time. More than once I’ve seen the fish drop  over the side after all that hard work.

  1. I got a shot on an Ahninga swimming beneath the glass bottom boat at Silver Springs, Florida!
    It’s a bit dark, owing to conditions, but the water was crystal clear.

    Nice sequence!
