I am quite lucky here at home, my lake is one mile from the Gulf of Mexico, so quite a number of things to shoot.

Hi Mike,

The hug was referred to the black bird, it looks like a cormorant, but I don't think it is.

Nope, Anhinga, Also known as the snake bird or water turkey, the anhinga is a year-round resident of Florida. It is also found from coastal sections of South Carolina westward to Texas and Mexico, and even south to Argentina.

Is that a cormorant or anhinga? These birds are often confused for each other at first glance due to their similar appearance. Both birds are primarily black and approximately the same size. The cormorant is 33 inches long with a 52 inch wingspan; the anhinga is 34 inches long with a 48 inch wingspan.

Thanks for the clarification Mike, I don't think it is present with us, "I could be wrong", the cormorant instead exists mainly in ponds and I have also eaten it.

Same here. This one was on my bank, I went to grab camera, he stayed until I was ready, then flew across to the other bank and started flashing me.

He had just caught a good sized bass, and finished the gulp as I saw him.

Excellent shot - sharp, good detail, and a great wing-span pose.
