Garça-vermelha,Purple Heron (Ardea purpurea)

Hello TN Friends!
Lately I've dedicated my free weekend time photographing the night herons fishing while I go watching the black kites in the nest and waiting for the birth of the pups.
The picture I post today was taken last week in a small wetland spot a few kms from home... perfect for a free afternoon...
This purple heron was peacefully eating in front of me.

Another picture taken from the car...

Have a good week and thanks for viewing ...
