The Anhinga

Posted by Susanna On February - 10 - 2011

While working mostly on my photos everyday I could observe this interesting bird (cormorant family) dry off at the pier. It is called Anhinga or better known as Snakebird. Why? Because it looks very amusing when it swims – and snakelike. The bird is not able to waterproof its feathers using oil produced by the uropygial gland like for example ducks. So it sinks easily and swims mostly only with the head sticking above water which as you can imagine looks like a snake. My first time I’ve seen that.

About Me

“The problem with modern man is that we have forgotten the language of silence, we have forgotten the way of the heart. We have completely forgotten that there is a life which can be lived through the heart. We are too much hung up in the head, and because we are too much in the head we cannot make any sense out of love. It becomes more and more problematic.”
