Photo of the Week

I shot this picture of an Anhinga in Florida.Nicknamed the water turkey, they have also been variously called snake-bird and darter. Anhingas dive deep under water to catch fish, their main food staple. Beautifully illustrated, this anhinga displays its striking characteristics of a slight tinge of iridescent metallic green sheen on its glosssy black plummage.The 'water turkey' does not have waterproofing on its feathers as do many other birds and therefore can often be seen with their wings spread out drying in the warm sun.

Gizelle is adorable!

Looking very mature for her age, this 15 month old totally looks like an 18 month old.
