Photo of the Day - Oriental Darter

Oriental Darter

From WikiPedia: "The Oriental Darter or Indian Darter (Anhinga melanogaster), sometimes called Snakebird, is a water bird of tropical South Asia and Southeast Asia. It is a cormorant-like species that has a very long neck. It often swims with only the neck above water. It is a fish-eater."

Canon EOS 400D with Canon EF 70-200mm F/4 L IS USM couple with Tamron SP AF 1.4X TC. Photographed at Kumarakom.

Thanks to Vimal for helping me identify this bird.
