Each morning, this anhinga is perched, drying his wings on one of the posts at my fence.  Today, he was not dry enough to fly off when I reached the fence, so, after falling into the water, he made his way back up to the top of the post to dry completely.  I was able to get about 5 m from him before he started to make a lot of noise….

A few minutes later, some of his feathers had dried, reflecting a lighter color, and he took off.
