Shot of the day: Purple Gallinule

Purple Gallinule, Everglades National Park, Florida USA (Click to enlarge)

I’m spending the next few days in the Everglades doing some bird photography.  Here’s one of my favorites from this morning, shot at the Anhinga Trail in Everglades National Park.  The bird is a purple gallinule, something you won’t see just about anywhere else in the USA.

Shot details:

Nikon D300
Zoom Nikkor 200-400 f/4.0 AFS VR G lens
Gitzo 3340LS tripod with Wimberley MkII head
