    Lovely close-up. Nice pose and eye contact. The low angle adds to the composition. Nicely captured. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice image. The focus is slightly forward and on the grass. Else the hoopoe would have been sharper. The angle is great. When one is parallel to the subject lying flat on the ground, the background becomes completely out of focus. Look forward to more such efforts. On another note, it is also good to lie down on the ground as scientists say that increases the body resistance.

    In the second image you look to be towering over the hoopoe. May be instead of the smile, you could have given a frown or a deadly expression which would have been more apt about man vs others.

    Cheers,
    Sabyasachi

    Nice. I found this bird coming closer when I used to lie down on grass in Nehru Park, N.Delhi during the winter afternoon on holidays. Thanks for sharing.SaktiWild
