[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hoopoes are widespread in Europe, Asia and North Africa, as well as Sub-Saharan Africa and Madagascar. They migrate from all but the southernmost part of their range to the tropics in winter.

Their habitat is open cultivated ground with short grass or bare patches. They spend much time on the ground hunting insects and worms.

frumoase culori si privire...


Lovely photo ! Good DOF and interesting POV. Detail and color are nice as well. I've always wanted to see one of these birds, they are so exotic looking, lol... and supposedly they do extend their range to the British Isles, so maybe I'll get my wish.

TFS, Mish

Bonjour Szabo,
Trčs belle photo qui est difficile ŕ prendre !
Cette Huppe Fasciée est magnifique.
La netteté est bonne tout comme les couleurs.


Szia Jóska!

Milyen érdekes madár, még nem láttam ilyet! Aranyos feje van, és az elöl színes hátul fekete-fehér mintázat is nagyon jól néz ki.
Kompozíció, dof, élesség és minden egyéb tekintetben nagyon rendben van a kép! Köszi!

Hello Szabo,
Good Hoopoe portrait. Bird's specific on the ground behavior is well displayed.

reusita imagine - tinand cont si de faptul ca aceasta pupaza e o pasare de care te poti apropia greu ...
