[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The herons are long-legged freshwater and coastal birds in the family Ardeidae, with 64 recognised species (some are called "egrets" or "bitterns" instead of "heron"). Within Ardeidae, all members of the genera Botaurus and Ixobrychus are referred to as "bitterns", and including the Zigzag Heron or Zigzag Bittern are a monophyletic group within the Ardeidae. However, egrets are not a biologically distinct group from the herons, and tend to be named differently because they are mainly white or have decorative plumes. Although egrets have the same build as herons, they tend to be smaller.

Hello Foozi,
Outstanding inflight shot of this beautiful heron. Every feather can be seen in fine detail and colors are true and natural. This is one of the best inflight heron images that I believe I have ever seen!!

Hello Foozi,
Marvellous photo of this Purple Heron, ardea purpurea manilensis, in flight. Last month I discovered a place in our country where I can see many Purple Herons. But I didn't have a good photo of them.
Great sharpness and natural colours.

Hi, dear friend.
I am glad to see you here again. I have missed your brilliant bird series due my often absence. Great in-flight picture. I like wonderful pose of the bird, ultimate exposure and freezing of an impressive moment. Well done and TFS.
