Hi Radz! Very good job on that pair of hoopoes. Very sharp details, good exposure, and great composition. Hoopoes are such interesting looking birds. We don't have any here. TFS. : )

Hi Radz!
This is superb and funny photo!
Wonderful and great!

Great looking birds. Looks like it is wearing an 'off the shoulder' garment. Good POV and details. Crisp and clear. Nice work. Thanks.

Hello Rathika

Very interesting picture. The composition with the diagonal branch and the position of the birds is very good. The background is well blurred and setts off the birds nicely. The colours are very good and natural. Only nit is that the picture all over looks a little dark - may be a little more contrast or saturation would help - just a little.

Hello Radz!

Hi Radz. They do indeed look like friends enjoying a good natter. Good light and good POV here and I like your DOF which results in a lovely BG. Great timing and great composition. TFS :)

Very nice capture of these amazing birds. Good work Radz.

An interesting capture of these unusual birds, Radz.

Hi Radz, Indian hoopoes have longer bills. Capturing two of them in a frame is great. I loved your composition.
Very well done.

Its a nice composition and a two stunning subjects. I love the hoopoes and they frequent my garden often. Very well done.

excellent photo, Never seen this bird before

I love pics with two or more subjects of the same kind. This is really good Radz. Colors, exposure and sharpness are perfect. Their pose on the branch with the blurred BG give them a real presence. Open beak adds to some action. Well done!

Very good picture of nice birds


I am glad these two did not fly away before you had a chance to focus.

Great composition with excellent detail. What makes this photo unique and funny is the fact that the bird on the left is obviously talking to the one on the right. I wonder what he/she is saying. Smile.

Hi Rathika,
Very good shot. The details and lighting are great. I like it very much. Well done!

Hallo Rathika,

Excellent capture of these two hoopoes! Very good composition and POV! Great work with DOF, the birds are very sharp and the BG is nicely defocused. Exposure is also very good! Colors are brilliant and look very natural! India has certainly one of the most diverse and beautiful wildlife in the world! Congratulations for this work of art! TFS!
