Upopa epops (Hoopoe): In the Wild

One of the most beautiful, strange looking birds in Greece, the Hoopoe is a spring visitor and stays till early autumn. It is quite difficult to get close to it; almost impossible to get a good photo of it in flight due to its butterfly – like mode of flight. Thus, the hoopoe is always a challenging subject for the photographer.

Photos by Mahi Goula and George Parchas.
