Hi friends,
This hoopoe (upupa epops) is inside of an european bee-eater comunity. He has his head leant to one side because he was being pestered by bee-eater.
I hope you like it.

This is a wonderful picture, there is nothing I don't like about it, great background, sharp, lovely colours and a great composition.

One of my favourite birds on Earth! Such a splendid animal to look at but such a miserable animal on her nest. Its her and the cuckockoo that are subjects of so much Folklore in the Balkans where I grew up.

Hello Jorge, this is a delightful image. The tones are super and the exposure is very good indeed. Excellent work.

*I've turned off my points, I cannot recieve and I cannot give. I'm sorry for the latter*

Excellent shot of the Hoopoe and a very interesting bird with a fantastic display. The exposure is very nice with the perfect DOF isolating it so that it commands full attention. Awesome Jorge! :)

Brilliant picture Jorge. This is great.
Detail superb.
