Hi Devendra,
I would have called this "Meep Meep" like the roadrunner :-) Good shot and nice idea to catch this bird in motion on the ground. Could have been a bit sharper so maybe shot at 1/60 or so, but still a nice shot!

A little out of focus and lacking feather detail but definately gives one the impression of a running bird.
I like the photos and the bird is an impressive looking creature.
Thank you for sharing.

I know how difficult they are to take a picture of.

I love the motion around the Hoopoe bird. Even though there is a lot of movement the bird's head is relatively sharp. Nice POV! Good job Devendra!

Love motion effect.Good capture.

I am so impressed!! I have always loved the Hoopoe adn this photo is a completely differnt take! The panning motion has captured this activity almost perfectly. I perhaps would have cropped with a bit more in front of the bird if that was possible. Its very centered. Thanks, for sharing!


Hi Dev,

Wow what a diffrent way to capture and present a picture. Great idea, keep it coming

Hi Devendra,
Great shot! I love how the blurred background gives a sense of the speed of this bird. Pretty decent sharpness for a bird moving so fast and a shutter speed of 1/30. Nice job!
