Oooo, fantastic photo!!!Congratulations my friend!!!is so beautiful bird!Many greetings
The amazing variety in your gardens! Fantastic photo!XX
What a sharp shot of a handsome fellow. :)
Great bird, a rarity here in north Japan though I have seen a few, not as good as seeing them in an olive grove in the Med...........
I would be in heaven if I saw and was able to capture a beauty like this on camera. Wonderful!!
Oh--wow--this is one I have never seen! Thanks!
What an unusual bird. I thought at first it was a woodpecker of some sort.
NancyYes he is,at his most interesting when he opens his crest.Reminds me ofan indian chiefs head-dress.
GigaThankyou my friend,he is a very unusual bird and is not around for long.Comes here every yearin late March, but was earlier this year.I was very lucky to get a photo,glad you like it.:)
MagdaThankyou,these two were the best of four I was able to take.I might have been able to get more shots if my Teckle hadn't startled it!!
Eva GonçalvesIt was a nice surprise to see that the "Poupas" are back.It was the second sighting I had had,but was only successful yesterday,when I saw twonear my studio.I'm so glad you like them.:)XX

Nature provides unforgettable images
Stuart PriceThe Hoopoe is with us for a short period of time,usually from the latter part of March to mid April.We always see them in the same placeeach year,so I was on the lookout for a chance to photograph them as Ihad spotted one the day before.I got lucky!!
DeannaI must admit to being very excited when I realized that I had a chance of photographingthis shy bird and although I have taken photosin the past,this is the first time I managed toget a decent close-up!!:)
NavaIt's not uncommon in central europe,and is verybeautiful in flight,and when it opens it's crest.
S EtoleAh yes I can see why you thought it was a woodyat first glance,the black and white featheringand the touch of orange!!In flight they are notdissimilar.:)
