Captured photos of two birds for the first tme. Evergaldes Snail Kite and Limpkin. The Snail Kite is on the endangered Species List. It's main diet is the Apple Snail, accounts for the exagerated hook on it's bill to get into the shell. Also caught Great Blue Heron, Great Egret, Common Gallinule, Hawk (May be young Red Shouldered Hawk), Anhinga, Osprey, and Mockingbird. As a bonus I caught a hatchling aligator on top of it's nest, no sign of Mom.


All with K20D, DA300mm F4.

Will post more in other threads.

Your second picture is really beautiful, but I think I like the first one best. It's fun to see the two birds so close to each other.
