Got lucky and caught a Purple Gallinule looking back before he high-tailed it in the bushes. My wife referred to it as the 'Rainbow Bird' due to its variety of colors.

Thanks for looking,
Tom

Wish I could get lucky

Such a cool eye to go with those colors and you got a great head turn to make the shot!

Hiya' Karl! I hope you get lucky as well and have an opportunity to see and to photograph such a guy.

Ditto, the 'look back' certainly helped for the shot.

Best,
Tom

Thanks for your kind words Socrate. The shades of blue / purple contrasting the red / orange / yellow are incredible on this bird.

Best,
Tom
