Mark Williams, un fotógrafo que se dedica a captar la fauna silvestre, logró fotografías y grabar a un ave conocida como picozapato, o Balaeniceps rex. 

Por medio de su cuenta de Instagram, compartió el momento y explicó cómo ocurrió. "El animal permaneció oculto e inmóvil como si fuera una estatua de piedra, después caminó en mi dirección ignorándome completamente”, señaló el fotógrafo.

Most videos of the shoebill are of captive birds in a zoo. Here I had to go to Uganda to find this one in the wild and natural habitat. After arriving at sunrise one morning and locating him on the shores of Lake Victoria I proceeded to spend the next few hours in the reed beds to observe and capture many images including this iPhone video. They're almost prehistoric in appearance and it's amazing they haven't gone the way of the Dodo due to mans shortsighted acts over history. They're's now approx 2500 remaining and most are found in Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda. For ages this modern day dinosaur just stood deep in the reed beds like a stone statue and I had no means to close the distance between us so I patiently waited. Suddenly it broke away from its trance like state of patiently waiting and hunting and proceeded to walk right in my direction totally ignoring me and my guides in the canoe. Funny how not enough focal length suddenly turns into too much focal length so quickly. After getting many images of him from full body down to just head shots I put down my camera and pulled out my iPhone to capture the moment. Hope you like the glimpse into this modern day dinosaur behaviour and natural habitat. #kings_birds_ #birdfreaks #total_birds #eye_spy_birds #planet_birds #feather_perfection #perfect_birds #your_best_birds #bird_brilliance #birdextreme #nuts_about_birds #bestbirdshots #best_birds_of_instagram #birds_private #birds_of_instagram #birds_adored #planetbirds #ig_discover_birdslife #naturelite #natgeowild #bbcearth #shoebillstork #beak #stork #unusualanimals #birds #bird #wildlifeperfection #wildbird

Para lograr capturarlo, Williams tuvo que desplazarse hasta Uganda, específicamente en el lago Victoria. Allí es posible ver en libertad a dichos ejemplares de esta especie que se encuentra en peligro de extinción.

The prehistoric looking Shoebill stork is a unique and fascinating bird species. They're not hard to photograph but they're hard to find with only approx 2500 worldwide population. I found this one in Uganda and found them on the river Nile and on Lake Victoria. They stand 5 ft tall and weight around 6 kg. They eat lung fish and other aquatic prey like frogs and spend ages frozen like a statue waiting for the moment to strike. The huge beak is from where they derived their name and it's not hard to see why. #kings_birds_ #birdfreaks #total_birds #eye_spy_birds #planet_birds #feather_perfection #perfect_birds #your_best_birds #bird_brilliance #birdextreme #nuts_about_birds #bestbirdshots #best_birds_of_instagram #birds_private #birds_of_instagram #wildlife_inspired #birds_adored #planetbirds #ig_discover_birdslife #naturelite #natgeowild #bbcearth #shoebillstork #environment #beak #stork #unusualanimals #birds #bird

Sin embargo, la apariencia de esta ave ha recordado al hipogrifo que aparece en la saga de Harry Potter, según varios seguidores de Williams.
