Bird vs. Snake
Category: Spontaneous Moments
Photo and caption by Kait Waggoner
This is a picture of a Paraque (nocturnal bird) fighting off a snake to protect her baby. The baby is behind the mama bird. This is extremely rare because it was mid morning and the bird is never active during this time of day.
Location: Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica
