If I translate the Swedish name for this bird it will be "snake neck bird". Very suitable I think.

  2. That is a beautiful bird and it does look like a snake-neck..

    Yes, everything does come up in the thaw and we have had so little snow this season as we had our Winter Festival on the grass. Thank you for posting to Nature Notes and have a wonderful week...Michelle

  3. Great captures of the Anhinga. I also saw this bird in Costa Rica for the first time, it is a cool looking bird.

  4. What a beautiful capture of the bird...lovely and stoic looking.


I love comments so please write something. I usually responds to everyone on their own blogs. But nowadays I often find it impossible to comment on many blogs or on Google+. Often the word verifications is unreadable. And after three times I give up. Other times the systems seems to think I am a spammer. Lots of bloggers loose comments that way. :( So, if you don´t see me comment on your blog that is the reason.
