Male Anhinga Portrait - Breeding Plumage
A male anhinga in his breeding plumage amid a tangle of branches of the nesting colony. In what might be described as Audubon-esque, the pose has classic and beautiful lines. The velvety blacks and classy black and white patterns of the feathers lend well to a black and white portrait. The white frame background for the dark bird is a distinct contrast with the previous portrait of the white egret against a dark background.
