The Incredible Mr. Limpkin

You don't often spot any limpkin around here, but I got lucky today and found a pair of them at the Upper Myakka Lake. I followed them around for a while and even managed to get both of them into the same shot a little bit. These guys have the weirdest calls, so you know immediately if there are any around. But they are shy, so I consider myself lucky to have gotten to shoot them. Come to think of it, pretty much every time I've seen these guys it's been up at Myakka. No, wait, I found them in Lakeland once. Don't remember if I got any good pictures that time, though.

I even got one decent shot of the larger one coming in for a landing.
