Hi Volkan
Superb shot of this Hoopoe - wonderful detail, very sharp. Nice pose and good off-centre composition.
Kind Regards

Hello Volkan,

Great capture of the Hoopoe which is not too easy to capture :) just wonderfully shown!

I like the great contrast in the picture especially the drak black eyes against a blurred BG. In addition, great sharpness with nice details of the body of Hoopoe and nice POV with great DOF make your picture a hit! Wonderful composition!

Thanks for sharing.

Hello Volkan,
I think the best photo of this species I've ever seen. Taken from a perfect low POV. Amazing sharpness, colours an eye-contact. Nothing to critize, just fantastic.

Nefis olmuş Volkan .
Eline sağlık .

Hi Volkan. A bird i have not seen in the wild but i hope to one day. The Hoopoe is an unusual looking bird . Which you have taken with fine detai land natural looking colours. i do like the head feathers.And rear body feathers. A good low POV . Well done TFs.

Hello Volkan,
For sure, it is one of the best photo of a Hoopoe that I even seen. Details and colours of the feathers are very impressive. One of my favourite birds. Congratulations,

Hi Volkan,

Of all the birds I have seen I think the Hoopoe will always be my favorite. I have seen one only once and am so glad I was lucky enough to do that. This is the best picture I have seen of this bird! The pose and the look on the face are magnificent. The crest, eye beak and feathers are marvelous with beautiful colors and superfine details. This goes straight to my favorites.

Merhaba Dostum,
Bu güzel kare gözümden kaçmış olmalı. Bu ibibiklerle aran gayet iyi anlaşılan. Ama benim favorim o dalların arasında ibikleri açık olanı :) Emeğine sağlık.

Volkan Bey, göz temasıyla birlikte enfes bir kare.

Merhabalar Volkan bey..
Gerçekten harika bir açıdan yakalamissiniz.. Çok iyi bir netlik ve kompozisyon.. Tebrikler çok başarılı emeğinize sağlık..

Hello Volcan
I'm waiting for a capture of this Upupa.Very beautiful moment and capture.Lovely colors and great shgarpness in a fine composition.
Best regards and thank You,
