Hi Zahoor

Wow, a delightful capture of this beautiful hoopoe.
The warm colours created by the late afternoon sun are an eye catcher as it really brings the browns and oranges in the plumage to life.
The birdie gave you a lovely pose and you've nailed the exposure.
Lovely sharp details as well.

Good work and TFS.

Btw. I'll be off the site for a week or so as I must go to hospital (tomorrow) to have an "incisional hernia" repaired. See you around later.

Hi Zahoor.
I love these species, I have met it few times near my small countryside house and I could not take any good shot. You have pictured this beauty perfectly. Superb close-up, wonderful sharpness and details of the bird image, natural impressive surroundings. Well done and kind regards.

Hi Zahoor
Nice shot of this cool bird photographed with good quality.

Hi Zahoor,
that's excellent, I love the perfect sharpness and the warm colours. A beautiful bird, we don't have them here in the cold Germany, but I had the chance to see several of them in Egypt. So thanks for yours, bye and greetings

Hello Zahoor,
Wonderful close photo in beautiful warm colours. Great sharpness and details. The POV and DOF are perfect. Excellent composition.
The few times I've seen a Hoopoe, they always ran or fly away.

Hi Zahoor
excellent detail,colours and perfectly sharp photo.
Regards Jiri.

I like this one, Zahoor, as it's a good photography in terms of sharpness and depth of field. The lighting is definitely okay and the colors rendered are natural.
And of course, the Hoopoe is a fascinating bird.
