Purple Gallinule
Photographer: Lisa Keith
Location: Shark Valley Florida
Story: 
After looking all over for purple gallinules in Florida, a ranger told us to try Shark Valley. She said they are right in back of the ranger station. She was right we saw a bunch of them, but I particularly liked this one in the bushes eating berries because you can see it's huge feet.
Digital Alterations: 
Color was enhanced with the saturation. May have booste the contrast also.
