Too late



This is one of my first photos i made. And the first and only time i saw a Purple heron. I made this photo during a practial in south France / Camargue / Centre du Scamandre. I saw this big heron during weeks flying around but everytime I lifted my lens up he flew away.. On day I saw him coming from far away. I hide myself behind a shrobbery and waited. He flew over me and get frightened. I had enough time for one photo.
