Snail Kite Eating a Snail

This Snail Kite was perched on a small tree eating an apple snail. This was taken from a pontoon boat. The engine had over heated, was turned off and we were drifting. The Kite did not seem perturbed at all and continued to eat his snail. It was the closest I have ever been to one!
