I love taking macro shots at older historical sites and gardens, also if you bring a piece of blank paper into a greenhouse, you can make it seem like a studio. If it is during a sunset, you can bring a flashlight, like... a good one would be a 9 lumen LED flashlight from a distance. Just shine it at the paper. Or bring a water sprayer or dropper, and just make it look like morning. The paper works good with an easel. I'm only 12, and I have an eye for macro.

Where is "Land of Dream"? I want go there and eat mango on the lawn.

You ought to crop the picture of the hoepoe to make it easier for folk to see such a magnificent bird.

I'm jealous you had one on your lawn.

How did you know that... Great pictures, though!

Click the "i" in the corner, and you can look at the photo at the same size it was uploaded, and zoom in as well.

No, I know that. I meant, how did you know that the bird is called a hoepoe? That, is the amazing thing.

Kiteman (author)splazem2011-05-21


It's a very distinctive bird, very few other species look similar.

I'm a birder as well as a Maker. I've never seen a hoepoe in the flesh, but they do occasionally turn up in the UK.

I actually do enjoy small-scale birding on my front porch. Unfortunately, I have never seen a hoepoe (I have seen an indigo bunting, though, and that was cool).
