This was my first look at an Anhinga nest. They stay in the interior and have their nests in the middle of trees. I would never have spotted it if I had not caught a glimpse of something black moving way back in there. The female is standing on the nest here and the male was above her in the tree. I didn't realize he was there at the time. There were lots of trees and leaves between me and that nest.
