Waiting patiently  - Purple Heron by Jamie-MacArthur Waiting patiently  - Purple Heron by Jamie-MacArthur
Probably the hardest species of Heron I have ever tried to photograph, it took me years of trying to get this close !!

I hear ya. These little Greens drive me bonkers. They are so beautiful but I can never get any good shots of them. Then again I've never had the time to really try. Always just taking pictures of what I can before or after work..... Great photo.

Wow! It's beautiful in so many ways! The background nicely complements the bird, and the bird itself sports a variety of colors and textures. You're so talented! ^^

It's such a shame that we have only grey herons here *sigh* because herons are beautiful, especially this one. Brilliant capture!

Great, I'll start snooping around the nearest lake right away! :D
I used to live in the country once though and we had plenty of grey herons wandering around the small pond nearby, as well as ducks, hawks and even eagles sometimes! It was amazing.

Jamie-MacArthur Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2012
oh I should mention they are migratory and very rare in Poland but do show up. check with your local birding group! - sounds like you could do with a trip back !
Reply
:iconpencillover:
PencilLover Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2012
Yeah, a trip back would be good before everything is flooded. Every spring we had half of our land underwater. It was really cool, we could do barbeque in boats :D
