Default Purple Gallinule Walking On Top

This shows how the long toes of this bird allow it to walk on top of floating vegetation without sinking through. For comparison the fourth photo is a Wood Stork in the same area, it's feet go through the vegetation to the bottom.

Cool! What a great-looking bird, and I love the stork's foot - looks like a hand. Never knew that.
