Purple Heron (Aredea purpurea)

I have captured this 'Purple Heron' recently, at Marieval Bird Sanctuary at the time of Sunset. It was bit cloudy and we got rain the day. But later got beautiful GOLDEN Light. Sunset light was covering the sky and I was lucky light was in my favor (You could see the shadow of its leg on another leg and you could imagine the source of light).
Purple Heron is a wading bird and breeds in Africa, Central and Southern Europe and Southern and Eastern Asia.

My thirst for the detail of setting as I use this TOY for sports specially football match, the ISO setting the shutter and aperture are essential to be mentioned, well shot as there me calculating the focal length.

Hi Srikumar
One of the best pictures seen lately here.
Great capture, and greater considering the bird's motion.
The background is an awesome plus.

Tfs & regards

Hi there Sir Srikumar,

Hats off to you sir for sharing your masterpiece to us. Great detail for an in flight capture of the heron. The lovely gradient background plus the natural light to the subject looks like a shot inside a studio. Impressive photo.

Have a nice day!
