Upopa epops! - September 2nd

Or, more commonly known as the Eurasian Hoopoe - but what a lovely scientific name.
A pair of these are regular visitors to our garden and I've been wanting to get a a shot of them for a while, but they are very shy.
Today was my lucky day.

Bahrain's weather today: Max: 42C/Min: 30C Max Humidity 85% Virtually nil wind. Max Apparent Temp: 46C

FujiFilm FinePix S5000Z
1/125s f/3.2 at 57.0mm iso200 full exif

other sizes: small medium original auto

Wow great shot. I had one of these in my garden (in England!!), but my shot is nowhere near as neat as this one.

rewarding capture...!! so your long wait finally paid off... i would have prefered the photographic rule of thirds to make it a bit more interesting ( unless we are highlighting repeat patterns)
