Very good photo, congratulations!

Hello Durzan,
excellent capture of colourful and bizzarely feathered Hoopoe, taken from an ideal angle, and well composed.
High quality image that would well deserved some little postwork for selective resharpening and for slightly increasing the brilliance of colours.
With thanks! Best regards,
