Common Hoopoe (Upupa epops)

One of the prettiest birds i ever saw or photograph. I spent a lot of time looking for this bird in our country (Slovenia) and actually i found some pairs but never get a opportunity to take a good photo of it.
Few weeks ago i was in Serbia where is the paradise for birds and had a whole day with this amazing birds, watching them bringing food for nestlings they had in the nest. But nestling were only one week old and we couldn't photgraph them how they take the food from parents. Definitly going back soon!
