Showcase: Hoopoe Extremadura, Spain

hoopoe in Extremadura, Span

A couple of years back I was sitting in a small hide on the vast steppe area of Extremadura, Spain waiting and hoping to photograph great bustard when suddenly, onto the rock in front of the hide, dropped a hoopoe. Within minutes it was joined by a second bird and for around 15 minutes they preened, displayed and fed each other with large grubs all the while oblivious to the 500mm lens pointing right at them! Here are a few images I’ve re-edited and for info, they were taken with a Nikon D2H 4megapixel DSLR!
