Only when I hear a siren and blue lights behind me when I run a red light:)

How odd looking. It looks like a smaller bird is trying to ooze it's way out of a larger body. It must be the andle. Hmmmmm.

But I like it and the sun is shining. MB

Gosh. This is a magnificent photo of a bird I have never seen. I like this blog too.

Great photo...the bird does look like he is wondering what in the world you are doing.

Great light and composition! And great contrast to the blurred background too.

Anhingas swim under water for long stretches chasing fishies...then when they come out they have to dry out their wings before they go back or they'll drown.

@ EG - I don't think they like the cold weather!
