    Default Hoopoe.....Jim Corbett!

    Normally one get to see Hoopoes foraging on the floor but this time we got it perched on a tree branch.We were sitting outside of our Forest Rest Houst at Bijrani Zone when this Hoopoe appeared on the sceme.

    Canon 80D,Canon 100-400 IS II USM,f5.6,1/5000,ISO 4000 at 400mm

    The characterictic crest of the hoopoe looks nice. Good eye contact. I think there is some noise in the background due to the high ISO. Thanks for sharing.

    Looks like this was a bit far. Also when the lens is pointed at the sky, you need to give a positive exposure compensation else the camera meter reading would average for the bright sky. Perhaps the best place to click Hoopoe is Bharatpur tea stall. If you are patient then you will find them 7-8 feet away on the ground. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
