Yesterday I spent about 20 minutes in a rather uncomfortable position (totally worth it) photographing this lovely hoopoe. These guys are a bit shy, so I was very happy to stay that close to one for such a long period of time. Didn't seem too concerned, as you can see.
I did try to catch it in flight, but no luck. Also, it didn't open its crest for me. They're even more impressive when they do that.
Still, it made me happy. :)
"I iz moar pretty than a mere sunset, anyways. Rite?"
These were taken early in the morning, back in April. This couple of crows were making so much noise outside they actually woke me up and I had to go see what the fuss was all about.
Hi, I'm still here! Just very, very busy...
Things will hopefully start to calm down over the next two weeks or so, and I will catch up with my photos. Eventually. :)
And from late March.
The birds are a Blue Tit and an European Serin.
