Free at last! Free at Last! Great shot....if I were released from jail after years I would certainly look up and although this bird is not in jail, it is like out of central casting in Hollywood. It posed well for you!

a lovely presentation with the details and sharpness well seen. The fence gives a good graphical composition too. Very lively pose and exciting subject.

This lovely bird is looked among the bars simply amazingly. This technical and natural combination is really fine. Light green BG supplements the main scene perfectly too. Kind regards and TFS.

Nice symbolic photo for freedom with the fence and the Hoopoe looking upward. Beautiful colours, also in the OOF BG. The sharpness is not total, but the composition is great.

Welcome back Goldy!
Nice capture of a Hoopoe.
Though the metal bars can be interpreted as symbolic, or just as a part of our presence in the natural world, I like the pose and POV that shows the Hoopoe with fine sharpness and colours as it looks up through the bars showing a nice catch light in the eye.
Thanks and kind regards to you,

Great shot of this unusual looking bird with beautiful markings and color. The bill almost seems too long for it's body. I must admit I have never heard of a Hoopoe bird until now. TFS.

The fence is framing well the bird. the point of view is showing the details and colors of the Hoopoe. The blurry background is putting in evidence the bird. The early afternoon light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.
