J'aime beaucoup les Ombrettes africaines, je trouve que ce sont des oiseaux très spéciaux et fort jolis.
Superbe ta photo.

Het lijkt wel een bouwvakker, oh ik zie nu dat ie hamerkop heet. Vandaar mijn associatie met bouwen.
Grappige naam voor deze stoere vogel.

Druk met het bouwen van een nest. Kan vast makkelijker ;-) Mooie scherpte, beetje beweging van de tak en het oranje komt fraai terug in de achtergrond!
