The Hoopoe is a personal favourite of mine. I have seen them in other countries but have never been as lucky as I was with this one. It favoured the manicured gardens of our hotel and was totally undisturbed by my presence allowing me to get really close for these shots. I spent a few minutes one morning with it as it unearthed ghastly looking beetles from the ground and it also sat sunning itself whilst I sat closely by it - a really magical experience. I just love it when you have an intimate encounter like I did that day, such a privelege! :)
