Contrary to your son's phonetic interpretation of the name, both words are untranslatable - they are simply alternate names for the bird in the original Latin. The Romans didn't coin that other word (which has more than one meaning) - and that's the straight poop! :lol:

Jake! You've been practicing Exceptional photos with some very very unique compositional decisions, and all work for me. Some wild and crazy stuff :?

Happy holidays

Good to see some of these again, Jake! Great lighting, and composition is super.

Always liked the Hoopoe shots. You seem to be doing things a bit more creative and works well.

What equipment are you using now? Hope you have a great new year ahead!

Love your work, Jake. On my monitor, these photos seem so real I could almost reach in and touch them, that's how tight they are. Your hoopoe is fantastic in that light. Well done and thanks for sharing. Cheers, Dan
