Years ago when I was in Florida on a photography trip I had the chance to photograph this next amazing bird with the help of a long lens that I rented. This bird is fascinating to watch because he runs around in the water as if he is dancing, running this way and then that way, all the while herding fish so he can stab them with his sharp beak. It is fun to watch! In hindsight I should have taken some movies of this.
Do you recognize this bird? (Hint: It is NOT a heron)
