Vanity or just another itch?

Double Crested Cormorant - The Anhinga Trail (a.k.a. Royal Palms), Everglades National Park, Homestead, Florida Vanity, or just another itch? FYI, if you want to get close-ups of these guys, and/or their Anhinga buddies, the Anhinga Trail is a good place for that! That's because Royal Palms is kinda like the Galapagos Islands, in that there are soooo many visitors that the critters have learned to ignore humans and/or feel safe in their presence. So lets all hope they realize it's the place that protects them, and they don't get reckless while visiting other places where they're not protected.
