As with last month’s image, Martin captured this when he was on his own. He was in Florida taking a multi-mile bike ride in Everglades National Park while I was on the other coast visiting our son Elliot. I think next to flowers, birds are his favorite subject to photograph. This amazing anhinga reminds me to stay in the moment and focus on the task at hand. It also reminds me that next time he goes to the Everglades, I’m going too!
