I want to complete my Heron collection in Thailand and we have had the Purple Heron several times in our viewfinders but it is always far and too sensitive to people. Every time we try to come close to get better shots, it would just fly away really far for one to follow. You to have a hide and wait for the Purple Heron to come and this bird is picky when in comes to regular places to hang out. If it comes back where you last saw it then it must be lucky or else it could be just a good guess.
Lucky enough that there were two or three of them flew by just above us and I had to take the opportunity in taking the shots or else I just have to find them else where again. Taking the shots from below allowed me to take the photograph of its full body. I wish it could have flown lower and closer to us. Well, some good things are given to us just enough and we just have to wait next time in taking more proper photographs of this big and shy bird.
