Purple Gallinule

I will admit to having a fondness for Purple Gallinules. I don’t get to see them often…only when I come to the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival in Titusville, Florida, and then only in any numbers if I get out to Orlando Wetlands Scenic Park in Christmas. Then I see a lot! They are such unlikely birds, with such a wild combination of colors and highlights…and the colors change depending on the angle of the light. And then there are those feet, or those toes actually. And of course, the way they walk across the pond weed and floating mats of plants. Altogether a fascinating bird. And I have not even mentioned their voice. 🙂 Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Polarr and Apple Photos.
