This was taken during a Snail Kite trip, but was way too good of an opportunity to not take advantage of. Limpkins are cool birds, and pretty uncommon in areas without a abundance of apple snails (seen below, and the same food Snail Kites hunt for.) Hope you enjoy it


Handheld from boat. 7DMkII. 500mm + 1.4x. f. 7.1. 1/2000.

Very nice capture. You would think he would eat it on the spot rather than hauling it around.;-)a
