[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Hoopoe (pronounced /ˈhuːpuː/), Upupa epops, is a colourful bird that is found across Afro-Eurasia, notable for its distinctive 'crown' of feathers. It is the only extant species in the family Upupidae. One insular species, the Giant Hoopoe of Saint Helena, is extinct, and the Madagascar subspecies of the Hoopoe is sometimes elevated to a full species. The English name is derived from Latin upupa, which imitates the cry of the bird.

Slav Durzan,
this is indeed a lovcely capture of the bird. Excellent composition of the diagonal crossing of the branch.
The bird is really splendid in good light and the features and its pattern of the feather is stunning.
You hve composed it very very well.


The quality of the current images in TN is improving dramatically with each day, and this perfect shot is a wonderful addition to that bunch I think. Good day Durzan! The beautiful Hoopoe is a common visitor in our gardens, but I still did not have a chance to capture it in photo. Great detail under mysterious light! Bravo!

Hello Dûrzan,
A special light in this photo what makes the photo very interesting. Beautiful colours. Good sharpness, composition and a pleasing pose with eye-contact. A beautiful dark BG too.

Bonjour Durzan,
Très belle attitude du sujet et bon angle de prise de vue sous une excellente profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Yandan üzerine ışık büzmesi düşmesi ayrı bir estetizm katmış kompozisyona dostum. Pozu da çok hoş:) sanki hava atar kızlar gibi durmuş:P
İyi geceler heval.
