[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Upupa epops. Upupidae.
28 cm. Ave inconfundible, de alas anchas y cola larga, con el pico largo y curvado y una larga cresta que, cuando está erguida, crea un "abanico" sobre la cabeza. Su plumaje es pardo-rosáceo pálido, con puntas negras en las plumas de la cresta y marcadamente barrado de blanco y negro en alas y cola. Vuelo parecido al de la mariposa, aparentemente débil, con letos aleteos que crean ondulaciones. A menudo se alimenta en terrenos abiertos. La que veis en la fotografía estaba alimentándose cerca de un camino y desde mi vehículo puede fotografiarle desde muy cerca. Su voz es puu-puu-puu grave pero de largo alcance; también notas maullantes y una alarma suave. Suele habitar terrenos arbolados abiertos, vergeles, parques. Iverna en terrenos arbustivos más abiertos. Anida en agujeros de árboles viejos.

Hello Ignasi!

I like the back lighting that accentuated the neck's feather. The fill in flash shows the black and white at the tail end very well.
Never seen this type of bird here.

Magnificent shot of this Hoopoe.
How close were you when you took this?
Razor-sharp edges and superb clarity.
I was thinking of getting the Sigma 70-300mm APO DG... what do you think of it?
Excellent exposure and lighting.
Great low-down DOF as well.
Well done Ignasi,
Joe

Bonjour ignasi,
Revoilà la jolie huppe, dans la même région que la précédente. C'était la même bestiole? Très bien exposée, malgré le contre-jour.
Merci pour ton texte : on croirait l'entendre ! :-)
Amicalement
