Flip ya for Lunch
This female anhinga did what she knew how to do to get her lunch. Anhingas typically stab a fish in the water, flip it in the air to turn it in the right direction, then catch it so it slides down their gullet. This shot was part of a three part series with the first showing the fish on the beak of the anhinga, then this shot (#2) with the fish in the air, and finally in the throat of the bird. I was really lucky to get this shot/series. Shot this at the Venice (Fla.) jetty, one of my very favorite spots for shooting all kinds of pictures.
