I took this shot of Purple Heron in Danube Delta, Romania.


Purple Heron (Ardea purpurea) is a species of wading bird found in the wetlands and marshes of Europe, Asia, and Africa. It is a resident breeder in the Danube Delta, Romania, which is one of the most important wetlands in Europe and a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.


The Purple Heron is a large bird, measuring up to 80 cm in length, with a wingspan of up to 120 cm. It has a distinctive plumage, with a purple-brown body, long neck, and dagger-like bill. The male and female birds look similar, but the male is slightly larger.


In the Danube Delta, Purple Herons can be found in the reed beds, wet meadows, and shallow waters of the marshes. They feed on a variety of prey, including fish, amphibians, reptiles, insects, and small mammals.


The Danube Delta is an important breeding ground for many bird species, including the Purple Heron. The delta is also an important stopover for migratory birds, with millions of birds passing through each year. The area is a popular destination for birdwatchers and nature lovers, who can observe the rich biodiversity of the wetlands and the unique landscapes of the delta.


All digital purchased pictures are 300 dpi resolution.


A resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch) is considered to be the standard resolution for printing high-quality images. DPI refers to the number of dots that can be printed in a one-inch row. When you have a high dpi, it means that the printer can produce a higher level of detail in the image, resulting in sharper and crisper prints.


The importance of 300 dpi resolution for a picture is significant, especially when you want to print it. If you're printing an image with a lower resolution, such as 72 dpi, it may appear blurry or pixelated when printed. This is because the printer cannot produce enough dots to accurately represent the image, resulting in a loss of quality.
