I saw three hoopoes today. One of them stuffed itself into a patch of grass as soon as I saw it. The other flew overhead. But the third one was foraging right in front of a hide, which enabled me to observe it efficiently.

Nicely focused upon amid all that vegetation and a great capture of this Hoopoe Gleb!
 
How lucky, I have only seen hoopoe two or three times, a couple of them in Portugal. The photo is very beautiful and the hoopoe is very photographic. Tfs.
