Purple Gallinule, #28/50

This colorful creature was so close to me, he didn't seem to mind that I was watching him.  The sky was overcast which brought out the beautiful bluish-purple plumage and bright yellow legs.

Interesting facts:

Climbs to the top of taller swamp vegetation, where it roosts during the evening.   Common resident of  South Florida.


  1. Wow, great capture of the vibrant colors! Such a beautiful bird.

  2. Beautiful! when the Peacock meets the Moorhen.
