Eating a Big Fish

Anhinga 1
After numerous tries, he got the fish properly positioned and mouth opened wide enough

It took this Anhinga quite a while to position and eat this fish. I walked away briefly when it appeared he gave up, and came back to find him trying again.

Working the way to swallowing slowly

I shot a lot of photographs to get these three. The fish wiggled quite a bit to try to escape, and the bird moved quite a bit to prevent escape, so focus and composition required a lot of patience and continual shooting.
