The Hoopoe is one of my favorite birds here in France and visits the same nesting site each year, an old tree in the field at the rear of my house. They are not shy of humans and will land in the garden to collect various food for their young this includes spiders, worms and a large variety of other bugs and lava. In this photo it is returning to the nest site with food and I managed to get this shot as it flew between the tree branches.
