Two adult and one juvinile Limpkin foraging for snails. One of the adults would find a snail and take it to the juvinile.

Love the pictures. You aren't being very nice, though - the more you post, the more I want that lens...

Nice documentation of how the adult teaches and helps the young one to handle the snail - it takes practice (and a longer bill). There is a feeling of tenderness conveyed in the pictures. Nice opportunity well taken.
