Purple Heron (Ardea purpurea)

Purple Heron (Ardea purpurea)
It was a bit bright the morning I took this, not ideal for photography, but I was pleased to catch this fella in take off mode and even more pleased with the end result. I've seen three in four days now, they're a bit like buses, you don't see one for ages then they all come at once! It would have all his reflection in too, but I was as far back as I could get with my prime lens.

Frank Roolooth, Mitch Seaver have particularly liked this photo
