purple gallinule

Porphyrio martinica


i was out at wakodahatchee shooting with a bunch of pros when this guy literally popped out of no where and snagged the flower thats in his beak then he flew. i shot almost completely blind knowing that it was futile and the shot would probably suck but when i was looking i found this one and freaked out!
