Magnifique photo de ce bel oiseau qui semble très agile! Les couleurs et la composition sont superbes. La netteté est parfaite.Le bg est super beau, Merci de partager!
Bravo et au revoir....JP

Bella cattura Vanni, complimenti. Paolo

Ciano Vanni. Ottima cattura per una specie davvero particolare. Non al TOP per nitidezza ma so quanto sia tosta da fotografare. Bene luce e colori.


Ciao Vanni
Bel colpo ;-)


ciao Vanni
this is very nice capture of beautiful upupa. focus, POV, eyes contact and composition very nice. I think you captured it under hard lighting. I looked photo information. ISO should be lower, e.g. 200 or less. Another choosen is that exposure value should get lower. I dont see all exif data, maybe -1/3 or more under sero will be better. I hope these will be useful for your next shots.
thanks for sharing, friendly regards

Hello Vanni,
Great composition with excellent colours, details and focus.
Nice light in the eye.

Ciao Vanni,bellissimo ritratto di questa upupa che non ho mai visto dal vivo ma che grazie alla tua foto posso apprezzare e conoscere al meglio,ottima qualita' fotografica che non merita ulteriori commenti,parla da sola...buona Domenica,Luciano.

Hello Vanni,

Beatiful bird and good capture.
Great composition. very welldone


Hi Vanni,

This is a really striking bird! The colours, markings and shape, especially, the large crown, curved bill and wing stripes make it a very distinctive specimen. You've certainly captured it well. I found on Wikipedia that it is called a Hoopoe in English. TFS.

Just as a variation, I did a workshop for you. There's nothing wrong with your photo. I just wanted to see how a slightly different presentation would look. I hope that you find it useful.
