~true bird fact~ The Anhinga does not have special water-proof oily feathers like most water birds. This enables him to swim quickly through the water, as you see above. The downside of this is that he gets very wet, and must dry himself as you see below.

Darkly graceful
A sharply placed word can leave you in tears
Doesn't believe in empathy or altruism as concepts
Immune to threats from all sorts of negative types, a good bird to have in your corner

And because I love you, the full, uncut anhinga vids
