Anhingas are spear fishers. This calls for skilled swordsmanship because both mandibles are usually driven clear through the prey. The fish must first be weakened or killed, then flipped into the air and caught in its jaws so that it can be be swallowed head first.
Photographed from a distance in the wetlands adjacent to our south Florida home, this Anhinga has captured a good-sized Red-eared Sunfish. Can she swallow it?
