Purple Heron (Image ID 35015)

CommentThis is the closest frame I managed to get of this bird, I only ever saw it in flight and mostly flying away from me. I wasn't prepared on this occasion, I didn't even have camera turned on. As it saw me first its response was swift so luckily for me it had a strong southerly wind to fly into. I have better images but not in Australia.
