They fascinate me the anhingas Shantilal, with those ultra-long necks.

Many thanks for showing him to us my friend.

Such large feet on this Darter and a beautiful image of this Darter Shantilal!
 
Shantilal, It’s obvious from your image why they are also called ‘Snakebirds’, that neck is amazing! Your image shows it off perfectly! 🙂
