Purple Heron 2

By Bob_V    
While going through and adding my new bird photos I ran across another purple heron image. I thought this one was lost, but here it is. I prefer this one to my first upload. What do you think. Thanks for all the C+C's on my previous upload, they are always appreciated.
Have a super day,
Bob

Beautiful colours and detail in the plumage with a nice composition.

Have gone back to see your first upload on this magnificent bird Bob, better? hmmmm. that's a hard one to answer, they're both stunning. With the first I wasn't too sure how it got its 'purple' name, and that shows more clearly here, in my opinion, as photographs, they're equal in merit!
