Purple Gallinule makes for a very colorful subject

I don’t think I have ever photographed a more colorful bird than this one. Taken back in May in the wetlands of central Florida, it was hopping along the tops of the vegetation.

Purple Gallinule are relatively common around the Gulf of Mexico and have occasionally turned up much farther to the north into southern Canada. Populations of the bird have decreased greatly in recent decades and it is considered a “species of high concern in North America”.
