A purple heron takes off

Carambolim Lake in Goa is a great place to do some bird watching . I was there last year and had some amazing sightings in just under an hour. There were so many birds – lesser whistling ducks, garganeys, purple moor hens, glossy ibis, open billed stork to name a few.

And there was this lone pretty purple heron in the marshes. It was sitting for a long time,  almost like it was in meditation, contemplating life, the pros and cons . And then in one moment, it just took off, getting out of its comfort zone, seeking a dash of adventure. Perhaps it needed to exercise its wings or find something more exciting for breakfast.
