Anhinga

The Anhinga, also known as The Indian Darter is an unusual bird. It is a fishing bird but after it dives it needs to dry its wings before taking off again. It stands like this, turning into the wind to dry it’s wings. This would seem to make the bird vulnerable to predators during the drying process,yet they survive! This one was photographed at the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel island in Florida.
