[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Purple Heron (Ardea purpurea)
Photo: young bird.

A large heron most similar to a Grey Heron but slightly skinnier and more straggly. Its narrower neck can look distinctly looped in flight and its trailing feet can resemble an untidy bunch of twigs. Its neck is also brown or chestnut rather than white or grey and its upperparts show less contrast than the Grey Heron. Adults can indeed look purply-grey on their mantle but juveniles are a sandier brown.

Hi Angelo,

The photo is just great, congratulations. I am familiar with this bird - it is very shy and difficult to come close and catch, I have managed once to capture one, but on the ground. How do you like your 30D? :)

Hello Angelo

Yeee, Finally Italy win. Nice shot. Very well captured. These birds are very sensitive and it is very hard to take a good shot when they are on the ground let alone they flying.
well done

Dear Angelo, congradulations to Italy you deserved it, very clean shot with very nice underwing details, tfs

bel momento del battito d'ala e dettagliatissima.

ho postato un fiore tricolore con su scritto "we are world champions": mi è stata tolta!
cos'è rigurgito di democrazia americana?

Nice sharpness and colors for an action shot. Difficult on moving birds and on a light background. Well done. Good POV too.
