Anhingas are large and slender birds with a “S” shaped neck. They swim and dive live dabbling ducks with their webbed feet, however, their bodies are fully submerged and all you will see is their head and neck sticking out of the water.
Week #39 of the Bird Weekly Photo Challenge is birds that eat fish as their primary diet. Some of my photos this week have been in other blogs, not necessarily Bird Weekly, but some are being recycled specifically for this challenge. Not all my birds were caught eating fish, but they are fish eaters. You do not have to show your fishing eating birds in the act.
The feature image is a Pileated Woodpecker. The old Woody Woodpecker himself. More information on him below. Keep scrolling!
The feature image was taken at Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park. Female elk were climbing the formations in search for heat from the thermals. Hot water was falling from the top.
Macro photography is close-up photography of small subjects. Mostly bugs and flowers get the spotlight, but today we are doing it on Bird Weekly. Macro is an extreme close-up, but for this post, any close-up will do. I know many of you don’t have a macro lens and that is okay.
