Hello Marios,
A wonderful portrait image of this beautiful Hoopoe. The detail is exceptional and colors are well saturated and natural. Love the nice eye contact with a tad bit of catchlight. Exposure is excellent and you obtained plenty of DOF. Great shot!!

PS. I actually got my first glimpse of one of these unique looking birds a few weeks ago when I was in Israel. What a thrill!!

This is a truly amazing portrait of a Hoopoe.
Exceptionally sharp and colourful.
Thanks.

Hello Marios,
I am impressed by the magnificent sharpness and details of this image. The composition is wonderful. Very nice colors and outstanding clarity. It is a superb colorful Hoopoe. This specie is migrating also in my country in summer
I hope to meet her.
