Hello Narayanan,
I have seen this species, which breeding visitor commonly, in many times here also I took many shots. But your captured greatly it in different biotop of dried leaves. Superb sharp details, especially on head. eyes contact and POV wonderful. I like it very much. Congratulations indeed. Thanks for sharing, best wishes friend

So well camouflaged on the ground amongst the leaf litter, good spotting. Wonderful sharpness and detail of the bird with the interest of him scratching around in the dirt.


hi ganesh,
this is 'Common Hoopoe' and foraging here for food. tfs.

Hello Ganesan,

Superb composition. Excellent sharpness of this hoopoe. Great light and colours.

Hello Narayanan
Hoopie Birds are really cool birds as we can see on this one. You did good work on this one.

This bird gives me a notion of where some indigenous peoples may have gotten their ideas for ceremonial dress.. Man mimicking nature for celebratory is a natural thing...outside of the church though..for in my mimic I try to portray it from the side of the Creator...sometiems even without knowing..a very interesting aviary and quite new to me...Good show!

Hi Ganesan.
Only few hours ago I have written that I have few dreams else and one of them to shoot hoopoe. You are luckier photographer and you managed to take nice picture of the beautiful bird. Excellent low POV and diagonal composition. I also like perfect sharpness of the image and nice rich colours. My compliments and TFS.

Hi Ganesh,

I'm so jealous. I had one chance at a shot of a Hoopoe and failed miserably. This one amongst the leaves is just great. You have captured this amazing looking bird showing off his personality. Nice colors and details of his crown, eye, face and plummage. I think this is one of the greatest looking birds in the world.

Hello Ganesh,
you captured this Hoopoe very well.
I like the strutting pose and the way he's concentrating on the floor, searching for bugs and stuff I guess.
Superb exposure.
Good sharpness.
Great DOF.

Well done,

Ciao Ganesh, lovely bird with wonderful colors, fine details and good sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Again a splendid post! How beautiful os the natural crown of the bird, and you have done a superb job by capturing it so brilliantly.
The look on the bird's eyes is interesting.
